Thiruvananthapuram: In a bid to highlight the issues of marine pollution and global warming, the world's first ever underwater CEO conference will be held at Groove beach, Kovalam, Monday.

Through this novel initiative, the meet aims to create an awareness among the Indian and international community regarding marine pollution and global warming.

The conference will throw light on various issues such as the adverse human impact on oceans, over fishing, pollution, habitat destruction, acidification and climate change. The conference will take a pledge to 'protect the ocean and marine life' and will also draw up a plan for a long term and sustainable itinerary for the campaign. The meet will highlight the need for an urgent network of marine protected areas (MPAs) to help sustain the oceans that in turn is vital for human survival.

Club for marine protect

Hotels and resorts situated on the coastal belt of south India will form the “Beach and Marine Environment Protection Club” (BMEPC) to commit to protect the ocean and marine life.

They will also join hands to reduce marine debris by constant routine beach and underwater cleaning.

The club will be launched on June 8, 2017, on the World Oceans Day.
