European Maritime Day local events

29/04/2019

A series of European Maritime Day local events are organised between from April to July 2019, as every year, 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.

The map of the month is a special version of the European Atlas of the Seas, prepared especially for EMD, which offers a thorough and comprehensive overview of the 150 events organised this year in 21 different countries (15 EU and 5 non-EU countries) including 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. A novelty this year is that many organisers of EMD In My Country 2019 also use their events to demonstrate the European Atlas of the Seas to students and pupils across the EU!
