Baltic Sea ports as drivers of the sustainable blue economy: making the Green Deal a reality
22 October 2021, 10h00-12h00
Please find HERE the recording of the meeting.
Ports do not only play an important role in connecting regions, creating jobs and growth, they can also contribute to delivering carbon neutrality and the European Green Deal. They have the potential of becoming gateways of sustainable blue economy, key hubs in delivering clean energy, green transport, circular economy and digital transformation. Baltic Sea ports are at the forefront of this process and this seminar will seek to outline current developments, future visions and ways to support the transition in the region.
What is an Intergroup?
The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup is one of the 27 Intergroups that were approved on 11 December 2019 by the Conference of Presidents for the 9th legislature of the European Parliament. Intergroups can be formed by MEPs from any political group and any parliamentary committee with a view to holding informal exchanges of views on particular issues and promoting contact between MEPs and civil society.
The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup brings together more than 100 MEPs from 7 different political groups and 23 Member States.
Intergroups are not Parliament bodies and therefore may not express Parliament's opinion.
Intergroups are subject to internal rules adopted by the Conference of Presidents on 16 December 1999 (last updated on 11 September 2014), which set out the conditions under which intergroups may be established at the beginning of each parliamentary term and their operating rules.
