The inaugural Marine Forum is designed to create a space for debate and the creation of ideas aimed at the conservation of the environment, specifically the Pitiusas environment around Ibiza and Formentera.

Environmental experts such as Pierre-Yves Cousteau, Mike Fay, Von Hernández, as well as Javier Goyeneche and Manu San Félix are expected to be part of the event. The forum will be led by Sandra Benbeniste of the Ibiza Preservation Foundation and supported by Marcos Marí on behalf of Marina Ibiza and Be Blue Trasmapi Care Project.

The main objective of this first Marine Forum will be to review the current situation of the sea in Ibiza and Formentera, as well as listening to the opinions of specialists and contributing ideas aimed at recovering what is already gone. Then enhancing the strengths of our marine environment and serving as an example of conservation actions to be replicated internationally.

Scheduled activities include workshops, presentations, good practices demonstrations and a cultural program, as
well as parallel recreational events. The public is welcome to participate, although specific activities aimed at technicians, companies and environmental associations of the islands will also be offered.

At the end of the forum, a document will be created with 10 environmental commitments based on the initial objectives.
