The deadline for applications to make your event a part of European Maritime Day celebrations this year is next Friday 31 January.
In 2019, a total of 145 events were organised across 23 countries under the ‘EMD In My Country’ banner, with activities from beach cleaning to guided port tours, workshops and conferences, exhibitions on maritime themes, eco-tours, boat excursions and much more.
As previously reported on Afloat.ie, for 2020 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 this year — 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.
