In parallel with the European Maritime Day (EMD) Conference in Cork (14 & 15 May 2020), a series of local "EMD In My Country" events will take place all over Europe for the general public. Previous years' events included beach-cleaning activities, guided tours of ports, workshops, conferences, seminars and exhibitions on maritime themes, eco-tours and walks in areas with significant maritime heritage (cultural, environmental), excursions by boat, visits to maritime museums or former ships, shipyards and port facilities and more.
For 2020 the focus will be on youth activities. The European Commission therefore especially encourages all young ocean activists and youth organisations working for the promotion of sustainable oceans to apply. The deadline for submitting an event is 31 January 2020.
EMD in my Country 2020 will take place from April to June 2020.
