The European Maritime Day In My Country is the Commission initiative gathering events celebrating our ocean and seas.

Every year, from April to October, hundreds of events join the tide and take part in this wave of ocean awareness and activism.

Any event can apply, even far from the coast! Local activities such as beach clean ups, guided tours, art exhibitions, workshops, ocean literacy actions - you name it – is welcome.

For being part of the EMD family, you will receive in return goodies for your event participants, the promotion of your event on the Commission website, and you will enter a network of likeminded organisers.

In 2023, 494 events from 31 European and non-EU countries took part in EMD In My Country. This year, we aspire to break this record.

Seize the opportunity to make waves, submit your event before 15 March
