At a time of social and economic uncertainty and preparation of the next generation of EU-funded programmes to foster economic recovery, the Atlantic Strategy Committee (ASC) have worked to develop a revamped Atlantic Action Plan to give new impetus to the Atlantic maritime strategy. Based on four pillars (Ports as hub of Blue economy, skills and ocean literacy, marine renewable energies and resilient coasts), the Action Plan aims at reinforcing cooperation in this area and contributing to the European Green Deal, a socially inclusive model of sustainable development and job creation, while safeguarding marine and coastal environments and securing a healthy ocean. This event aims to highlight the lessons learnt from the past Atlantic Action Plan and other experiences of intergovernmental strategies and identify opportunities and challenges for an ambitious future for the Atlantic cooperation.

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.
