In parallel with the European Maritime Day (EMD) Conference in Cork (14 & 15 May 2020), a series of local EMD events, the EMD In My Country events will take place all over Europe for the public at large. During 2019, 145 events were organised in 23 different countries, attracting 25.000 participants, making a record in EMD history!: beach-cleaning activities, guided tours of ports, workshops, conferences, seminars and exhibitions on maritime themes, eco-tours and walks in areas with significant maritime heritage (cultural, environmental), excursions by boat, visits to maritime museums or former ships, shipyards and port facilities etc.
For 2020 the focus will be on youth activities; this is the opportunity for all the young ocean activists and youth organisations working for the promotion of sustainable oceans to apply and showcase their activities.
‘EMD in my Country’ 2020 will take place from April to June 2020. Read the call, submit your event to be part of European Maritime Day (EMD) in My Country 2020 and receive nice promotional material for your participants (organic cotton bags, notepads, posters)!
