Arved Fuchs Confirms Appearance at SEADEVCON 2020

Last year’s winner of SEADEVCON Maritime Award to introduce successor – Conference scheduled for 24 September 2020 – New venue Rathausmarkt

The SEADEVCON 2020 is taking shape. The author and expedition leader Arved Fuchs, winner of the SEADEVCON Maritime Award 2019, has confirmed his participation to present this year’s honoree. The prize is to recognize annually a personality whose “lifetime achievement is exemplary for the fight for a sustainable and respectful use of the world’s seas”.

Commenting on the announcement, Arved Fuchs said: “I am delighted to continue engaging with SEADEVCON. The format of this event is exactly what is needed to increase awareness around the pressing issue of CO2 emissions reduction. The discussion needs to be taking in business and society, and this conference creates the forum that has been missing.”

The date of SEADEVCON 2020 has been set for Thursday 24 September. The Conference will be even more closely physically integrated into the 12th Hamburg Climate Week, taking place in one of the tents erected for that occasion on Rathausmarkt, the heart of Hamburg, on the doorsteps of the City Hall.

Carsten Bullemer, organizer of SEADEVCON, emphasized the importance of the relationship that has developed between the explorer and the Conference team: “As we are working intensely on the program and speakers’ list for September, it is very reassuring to see that our approach is being endorsed by someone as credible and experienced as Arved Fuchs. With this support, we are confident to be able to take our event to the next level, making a valid contribution to effective climate action initiatives in the maritime industry.”

Tickets for SEADEVCON will be soon available.
