Mediterranean Coast Day 2016 - 27 September 2016 - BARCELONA

15th September 2016

The Coast Day is an annual Mediterranean event aiming to increase environmental awareness among policy makers, academia, media, NGOs and the locals of the importance of good coast management for achieving sustainable development in the Mediterranean region. We also invite organizations active in the Blue Economy field to take part in the exhibition.

The Coast Day was launched in 2007 to increase environmental awareness among policy makers, academia, media, NGOs and the locals of the importance of the Mediterranean coast as a natural, cultural and economic resource, and the risks it currently faces.

This year’s regional celebration will be organised in Barcelona, Spain, and its focus will be on the Blue Economy”, especially on the sustainability of key economic sectors supported by the Mediterranean coastal ecosystem such as fisheries, tourism, renewable energy and marine transport.

The first part of the event is dedicated to presentations around the concept of sustainable blue economy as well as discussion on good examples and best practices, while the second part provides more entertaining activities aimed at a wider audience.

International and Spanish experts will introduce the subject, present a study prepared by the Plan Bleu, as well as some concrete examples of blue economy social and eco innovations. Two Switchers namely LivinGreen and AGIR have been selected and will showcase their experience during the event.

Invited participants include Mediterranean governmental representatives, UNEP/MAP representatives, distinguished foreign guests, and representatives of international organisations in Spain and Catalunya, as well as local authorities, NGOs and local associations.
