MariaBox has been invited to participate in the Idea Stage of the Our Ocean Conference in Washington, DC on the 15th-16th September 2016. The goal of the Our Ocean Conference (OOC) is to push forward solutions to the most severe threats facing the world’s oceans. Secretary of State John Kerry will host the 3rd OOC in Washington, D.C. This international gathering of ocean leaders has become a hot spot of action on protecting the ocean, generating more than 4 billion dollars in commitments since it was established in 2014.
MariaBox will be present on the Idea Stage, after being invited and selected through a highly competitive process. The Idea Stage at the OOC will bring new, scalable ideas to an international audience. The OOC is an unparalleled opportunity to speak to the world’s most impactful leaders on Ocean issues.
