Eu4ocean Summit at the European Maritime Day 2022

An initiative on ocean literacy by the European Commission and EU4Ocean Coalition

The European Maritime Day, a 2-day conference with high-level plenary sessions including inspirational speakers, leadership exchanges and stakeholders’ workshops will take place on the 19th and 20th of May in Ravenna, Italy.

This year, the European Maritime Day will host the Ocean Literacy EU4Ocean Summit (on the second day – 20th of May), focusing on Ocean and Climate, Food from the Ocean and Healthy and Clean Oceans.

The Summit will showcase and award the most successful initiatives, collaborations, and actions of more than 200 members of EU4Ocean Coalition. Organisations, individuals, young people, schools and teachers are coming together to celebrate their efforts and commitment to the ocean and invite others to join them in their work to enhance ocean literacy throughout Europe. They will demonstrate how working together can achieve more than individual actions. The EU4Ocean Summit will be a great opportunity to join this growing movement.

Moreover, on the 2-day event, EU4Ocean members will be developing many interactive activities at the EU4Ocean Coalition booth and exhibition space.

The Summit, supported by the UNESCO as one of the Ocean Decade Actions, will also kick off a new series of initiatives, such as the new EU4Ocean Mentoring Programme.

The Coalition wants to keep the momentum going, renew the commitment of its members, bring new ocean lovers on board, and pave the way for further progress.
