EMD is a two-day annual event during which the maritime community (scientists, civil society, policymakers etc.) meet to share knowledge and promote sustainable development and innovation for sustainable oceans.
During these days and alongside Ayam Sailing Europe alongside the European Commission's Joint Research Centre JRC promoted the Erasmus Maris initiative at a stand hosted by the EU4Ocean Coalition for Ocean Literacy. This coalition, established by the European Commission, aims at uniting European stakeholders to foster ocean literacy, responsible ocean-related practices, and informed decision-making.
We received an overwhelming response from various actors wishing to work with us and support us in our objective of implementing the concept across the EU. It affirms the significance and impact of our approach in addressing the challenges of implementing inclusive citizen science in schools for sustainable seas and oceans.
