In parallel with EMD Conference in Ravenna (19-20 May 2022) EMD In My Country 2022 events will take place all over Europe from April to October 2022.  

EMD In My Country is a key part of the wave of ocean awareness and activism that has been rising steadily in recent years: the events under its brand have become more and more popular, attracting more than 25,000 participants every year. Local activities such as beach clean ups, 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.  

EMD In My Country 2021 included 232 virtual and, where possible, physical and hybrid events, organised in 25 countries (21 EU and 4 non-EU countries), covering all the sea basins of the EU making an absolute record in the history of European Maritime Day! 

2022 will be the European Year of Youth, so we welcome plenty of events with a focus on youth activities. 

All the organisers will receive sustainable #EMD In My Country-branded gadgets and their events will be promoted via the Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries' information channels. 

As the COVID-19 pandemic is not yet over, EMD In My Country 2022 will include physical, virtual and hybrid events that will take place from 1 April to 31 October 2022. 

Are you ready to submit your event(s) for 2022? Apply for your own European Maritime Day in My Country 2022 events, fill in the application form before 31 January 2022 and bring European Maritime Day 2022 to your country.
