26th March 2021, 12:30 to 13:30
Marine Economy Week is a new virtual event hosted by Harper Macleod. Running from 22 – 26 March, it will examine all aspects of Scotland’s diverse maritime sector.
The marine economy is a fundamental part of Scotland’s Natural Capital, as well as having the ability to play a large role in the efforts to tackle climate change. Until recently, the scale of the sector has been overlooked given the diversity of its enterprises and stakeholders. However, it contributes hugely to both local and national economies and has phenomenal growth potential in Scotland.
Marine Economy Week has been created to help ensure that, at the highest levels of Scottish policy and decision making, marine is not allowed to be ‘the one that got away’.
Get involved in daily roundtable sessions
Over five days, Harper Macleod’s specialists will be joined by industry experts to examine an array of crucial issues facing all parts of the sector.
You can register for as many live roundtable sessions as you like. See the full list on the events page.
