Working on 21st century challenges at Blue Forum
Blue21 co-founder, Karina Czapiewska was invited to give a presentation about Blue Revolution at the Blue Week Event held by the Blue Forum in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, on 28th of May. In the presentation, Karina introduced 21st century urban challenges that we are facing all over the world and gave figures on the landmass that we will need in the future to meet the energy and food demand of the growing population. She then introduced how floating development has the potentials to reach these demands while contributing to ecological benefits and human well-fare. A number of realised and on-going floating projects that are being carried out by Blu21 have also been presented, demonstrating the global interests and market for sustainable development on water. In addition to two other colleagues from Blue21 who also joined the event, Clarissa Sander and Fen-Yu (Vicky) Lin, one of the co-founders from Blue Frontiers, Egor Ryjikov, was also present to meet other like-minded entrepreneurs and experts from the offshore marine industry.
