Join the EU Mission “Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030” Event in Genoa!
Deploying Mission Ocean and Waters across cities, ports and fleets
The Shared Transition Plan of Mayors
Date: 26 June 2023
Location: Genoa, Italy
The European Commission, in close cooperation with the Municipality of Genova, the LIFE4MEDECA Project and the BlueMissionMed Co-ordination and Support Action, will organise the high-level event Mission “Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030”- Deploying Mission Ocean and Waters across cities, ports and fleets – The Shared Transition Plan of Mayors.
The event, as part of the celebrations for the Ocean Race Grand Finale, will take place at Ocean Live Park of Genoa.
The aim of this event is to further disseminate the Mission Restore our Ocean and Waters and engage with a broad range of stakeholders. It will launch the first Shared Transition Plan of Mayors for the Mission as a good practice showcasing how waterfront Cities and Competent Authorities can actively cluster a broad range of actors and mobilise investments (shipowners, ports, green technology providers, fishermen, maritime tourism/leisure organisation and boat license & seafarers course providers, financial sector).
It will also focus on fleets and their contribution to restore our seas and oceans. The Italian Navy’s training ship Palinuro will be accessible to participants at the end of the event.
On June 27, participants will be welcomed to attend the final Ocean Race Summit which will lead to the draft principles of the Declaration of Ocean Rights that will be presented to the United Nations General Assembly in New York in September 2023
