The summer is here again which means that the time has come to start preparing the Mediterranean Coast Day. This year it will be co-organised by PAP/RAC and SCP/RAC and celebrated on Tuesday, September 27 in Barcelona, at the premises of Sant Pau Knowledge Centre. The celebration will be organised within the project “A blue economy for a healthy Mediterranean” financed by the “MAVA Fondation pour la Nature”. Given the objective of the project, the topic of this year’s celebration will be the “Blue Economy” and its importance for reaching economic, social and environmental sustainability in the Mediterranean Region. The morning part of the celebration will be dedicated to presentations and discussion on good examples and advantages of the Blue Economy, while the afternoon part will be more relaxed and entertaining, aimed at a wider audience. Majority of the participants will come from the Mediterranean region namely, the PAP/RAC and UNEP/MAP Focal Points that are the main policy makers, as well as various institutions, NGOs and public in general.
