What is Brilliant Blue?
Brilliant Blue, is an exhilarating virtual competition that invites you to explore the world of ocean innovation. Seize the opportunity to unleash your innovative ideas, protect our ocean, and propel the blue economy forward. Brilliant Blue is a STEM Education program empowering youth, supporting employers, and fostering economic growth in the Canadian blue economy. Join us for the inaugural competition on December 16th, 2023!
Why Blue Economy?
The blue economy is of utmost importance for our planet's well-being. By promoting sustainable use and conservation of ocean resources, it ensures the preservation of marine ecosystems and biodiversity. The blue economy also plays a crucial role in mitigating climate change, as the ocean acts as a carbon sink and contributes to regulating the Earth's climate. Additionally, it provides livelihoods and food security for millions of people worldwide, particularly in coastal communities. By supporting the blue economy, we can protect our planet's health, foster resilience against environmental challenges, and secure a sustainable future for generations to come with the potential to create millions of jobs around the world.
Explore real-world pressing challenges with the inaugural Brilliant Blue competition, connect with industry professionals, discover opportunities in the blue economy, and get ready to take your innovative ideas to the next level!
