In May 2008, with a tripartite Declaration of the President of the European Commission, the President of the European Parliament and the Council President, was established the European Maritime Day, an initiative celebrated every year across Europe around the 20 May to raise the visibility of sectors connected to maritime sea and oceans. The main EMD event is a conference, that in 2019 will be in Lisbon, Portugal, but all around Europe, there is a series of local events allowing many European regions, with a maritime culture, to join in the celebrations and show off the importance of seas and oceans.
In the frame of the European Maritime Days 2019, it is possible to propose and organise an event in any EU country, or any neighbouring non-EU country, related to the sea, to be held between 1 April and 30 June 2019.
The possibility is open as well to other events, connected to these topics, that are already being organised, to receive the EMD branding and make it a European Maritime Day event, enjoy many benefits, more visbility and prestige.
It is possible to check the website of the European Maritime Days 2019, with exhaustive explanation on all the steps to follow to candiate the proposal, information about the support offered and much more.
