The Seaweed Manifesto describes how macroalgae can contribute to achieving the SDGs, including SDG2. However, domestication of these marine vegetables is still in its infancy. This side event will use a mix of individual interventions and a panel discussion to provide context and present current research challenges. After tracing the evolution of seaweed cultivation through today, from wild to domesticated for five crop seaweeds, we will highlight future research challenges in promoting restorative seaweed aquaculture, including in Africa, and its role in eliminating hunger, touching on topics such as nutrition, environmental impact, and novel species. A Q&A session will follow.
