This is not merely a small step but rather a substantial leap towards our country’s economic advancement and progress as a “marine nation” by 2050 which aligns with the 14th Sustainable Development Goal of conserving and sustainably using the oceans, and marine resources for sustainable development.
The University of Kelaniya, which has a track record of producing numerous intellectuals, is not only contributing to the nation by creating capable individuals but is also laying the foundation for a digitalized “Blue Economy” for future generations.
In this era of rapid technological advancement, the younger generation, who are already proficient in cutting-edge technologies, will be able to take advantage of our current contributions and would “walk on the ocean’s surface” .
