Sailing to Barcelona will be an international, high-profile event featuring a diverse array of boats that will each represent contributions towards marine and coastal conservation. Never has the need to protect our oceans in a holistic and coordinated manner been so urgent. Sailing to Barcelona will give a voice to creative marine conservation efforts from various corners of the world, while helping to build new and innovative partnerships for future action, and raise awareness beyond the conservation community.
Sailing brings you back to the fundamentals, just like the sea. Through Sailing to Barcelona, IUCN will use the sailing and nautical worlds as a platform for advancing the conservation of our seas, coasts and oceans.
