The year-long celebrations of the IOI’s 50th Anniversary came to a fitting close with a significant event hosted by HE George Vella, President of the Republic of Malta, at the Presidential Palace of San Anton in Malta.
IOI Egypt, supported by host institute the National Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries of Egypt, NIOF, organised a special event to commemorate the IOI’s 50 years since its founding by Elisabeth Mann Borgese in 1972 and to recognise the input and dedication of key local persons over the years.
This seminar aimed to address global concerns regarding the current impasse in the sustainable management of the Ocean and how the future of Ocean governance depends on the effectiveness of holistic, cooperative management, and most importantly, urgent and sustained action to address complex marine issues.
During a ceremony at the Presidential Palace in Malta, the IOI Honorary President Dr Awni Behnam – via video message – conveyed to HE George Vella, President of Malta, the IOI’s recognition and appreciation for hosting the IOI HQ over the first fifty years of its existence.
