Two days of conferences and events dedicated to the theme of the sea will take place in Ravenna on May 19th and 20th and, consequently, we will inevitably also talk about Blue Economy. Organized under the aegis of the European Commission this year Ravenna was chosen as the city that will host the events of the Forum. A special connection connects Ravenna to the sea. It was founded more than 2000 years ago by the emperor Augustus who chose it as the main port of his imperial fleet. Today it is one of the most important ports on the Adriatic. There will be the opportunity to participate both in person and virtually remotely and the main theme of the event will be “Sustainable blue economy for green recovery”. The European Maritime Day (EMD) is the place where ‘Ocean Leaders Meet’. It provides an engaging and complete interactive experience to catch up on the current state of play on a broad range of issues concerning the blue economy and the marine environment and discuss ways of moving forward. It features a large number of excellent speakers, thematic sessions, stakeholder workshops and project pitch sessions organized by stakeholders and the European Commission as well as hundreds of B2B meeting opportunities. EMD targets professionals from businesses, governments, public institutions, NGOs and academia.
It will be possible to register for the events by 12 May by going to the website.
