ust around the Black Sea Action Day (31st of October), the EU4Ocean Coalition is preparing the Let’s make the Black Sea Blue event – ‘Let’s make the Black Sea Blue!’, supported by the Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries of the European Commission.
The aim of the event is to give visibility to all relevant Black Sea marine-related communities, including schools and pupils, teachers, marine science educators, stakeholders from marine-related sectors, NGOs, youth, policy-makers and government representatives, public institutions, researchers and academia, conservationists, entrepreneurs, other ocean professionals as well as general citizens.
- The event will bring together and discuss on-going activities of the EU4Ocean coalition and its communities in the Black Sea, with a specific focus on marine litter following the SEArica event on the 4th of November
- It will give specific space to the interactions between Black Sea Young Ambassadors and Young Ocean Advocates of the Youth4Ocean forum, and
- Will focus on bringing the education on the Black Sea into the classrooms with the relevant stakeholders.
Kicking off at the Black Sea Action Day with the Ocean Literacy festival activities, launching the projects of the Young Ocean Advocates, and finishing with the panel discussions on how to move forward concrete initiatives in the Black Sea (in particular in the topic of marine litter) with marine experts, policy makers, youth, educators, and general public and make a movement to make pledges for the #MakeEUBlue campaign for making and keeping the Black Sea Blue!
