Submissions Open For European Maritime Day ‘In My Country’ Events In 2020

Applications are now open to submit your event to be part of European Maritime Day celebrations next year.

For next year, the focus will be on youth activities, and young ocean activists and youth organisations working for he promotion of sustainable oceans are encouraged to apply.

Events for EMD In My Country will take place between April and June 2020 — in parallel with the European Maritime Day Conference in Cork on 14-15 May — and submissions are open until Friday 31 January. For more details visit the EMD website HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
