1st EU Blue Parks Community workshop

The EU Blue Parks Community brings together EU Member States’ national and regional authorities, European marine networks, stakeholders and research and innovation projects. This Community aims to help identify and address challenges, share tools, solutions and good practices, and promote  innovative approaches, while enhancing cooperation across the EU sea-basins in order to protect 30% and strictly protect 10% of EU sea areas by 2030.

This online workshop is the first of a series of planned workshops. Subsequent workshops will address a variety of themes, from identifying and establishing marine protected areas, increasing their interconnectivity, and improving their effective management, governance and financing. Join this first workshop to dive deeper into the first key objective of the EU Mission Ocean and Waters on protecting and restoring marine and freshwater ecosystems and biodiversity, to learn about its EU Blue Parks Initiative and the EU policies dedicated to marine protected areas. The event will also feature presentations and discussion on the current state of marine protected areas (MPAs) in the EU sea basins and EU financed projects on MPAs/EU Blue Parks.

The agenda is available for download.

The presentation slides will be available for download soon.
