Ocean and global climate are intrinsically linked – and if the “right decisions are made at the UN Ocean Conference, the Ocean will be a big part of Portugal’s future”. 

That’s the view of Samuel Collins, a project manager at the Oceano Azul Foundation in Lisbon. 

The organization plays a big role in ocean literacy, aiming to educate a “blue generation”, works on ocean conservation, and also supports the development of startups creating products and services with positive environmental impact. 

UN News’s Ana Carmo talked to Sam Collins, and started by asking him about the expectations for the upcoming UN Ocean Conference that will take place in the Portuguese capital at the end of June.
