In My Country
Bringing European Maritime Day to your country
The 2019 European Maritime Day conference took place in Lisbon, Portugal. But there is not only one EMD. In parallel, a series of local EMD events are organised across Europe. This enables the many European regions with a maritime culture to join in the celebrations and highlight the vital role of the seas and oceans.
In My Country 2019 events
150 events were organised in 23 different countries: 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.
European Atlas of the Seas
Many organisers of EMD In My Country 2019 will also use their event to demonstrate the European Atlas of the Seas. This interactive tool offers lots of interesting maps and other information about our seas and oceans. Don’t miss the chance to participate in your local event and find out how you can use the exciting features of the Atlas at home!
