On October 11th 2019, the University of Girona (UdG) participated to the 58th Edition of the Barcelona International boat show.
The 58th edition of the Barcelona International Boat Show, take took place on October 11th, focused on sustainability and environmental awareness. Therefore, a lot of conferences on marine waste management and exhibitions were organised to raise awareness towards the general audience.
The UdG was invited by the Govt. of Catalonia/ Marine Catalan Strategy 2030 and gave a talk about the link between sea, economic activity and sustainability. The UdG emphasized on the many challenges the industry should face to find a way towards sustainable nautical activities.
The presence of only a few stands on electric, hybrid and solar-powered boats proved somehow that there is a clear need to travel many miles to achieve sustainable and balanced nautical activities!
