The event will focus on the Horizon Europe Mission “Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030” implementation and its planned actions to accelerate the transition to zero pollution in the Mediterranean Sea. In particular, this event will outline the co-creation process of the Mission Charter by discussing with stakeholders and youth how to get involved in the Mission.

The event is organised by the European Commission together with the Provence-Alpes-Côte-d'Azur Region, cluster “Pôle Mer Méditerranée”, City of Marseille and Aix-Marseille University, researchers and students.

On 13 June there will be a set of side events: the launch of the Ocean Sciences Institute of Aix-Marseille University and the first meeting of the European Ocean Research and Education Alliance (EOREA). Moreover, there will an exhibition organised by researchers and students – with the involvement of citizens and youth – that will show innovative findings and technologies to tackle marine and river pollution. This initiative will be followed by a torch light initiative at the Parc du Pharo – with the involvement of youth – as a symbol of the Mediterranean lighthouse.
