Pierre Yves Hardy is in charge of the blue economy at WWFHe is a Halieute engineer specialised in marine ecology and holds a doctorate in economic ecology from the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle in Paris. He has a dual background, both in living organisms through biology and oceanography and in humans through economics and anthropology, in order to find the conditions for a sustainable interaction between socio-economic systems and marine ecosystems. After a few years spent in the academic world, he dedicated himself to accompanying several maritime sectors within the WWF to move towards activities that contribute to the regeneration of the ocean's wealth.

At the Biomim'expo week 2020, William is offering a workshop: Towards a sustainable development of the blue economy - An ocean of unsuspected and already over-coveted resources

  • The development of human activities in the marine environment is continuing and will increase in the coming decades, and therefore brings both impacts and hopes. Solutions such as biomimicry can contribute to the sustainability of this development, particularly through new applications of eco-design, renaturation and bio-engineering.
    • The example of the port of the future (WWF Netherlands)
