In parallel with EMD Conference in Den Helder (20-21 May 2021) EMD In My Country 2021 events will take place all over Europe from April to October 2021.
EMD In My Country is an important part of the wave of ocean awareness and activism that has been rising steadily in recent years, and the events under its brand have become more and more popular, attracting more than 25.000 participants every year. Local activities such as beach cleanups, guided tours of ports, art exhibitions, workshops, conferences, seminars, exhibitions on maritime themes, ocean literacy actions, eco-tours and walks in areas with significant maritime heritage, boat excursions, visits to maritime museums, ships, aquaria, shipyards etc. aim to a wide audience across Europe, with a "fun and game" component directly appealing to a younger public.
As the COVID-19 crisis is not yet over, EMD In My Country 2021 includes 232 virtual and, where possible, physical and hybrid events, organised in 25 countries (21 EU and 4 non-EU counties), covering all the sea basins of the EU making an absolute record in the history of European Maritime Day!
