The full programme of EMD will run virtually via video conferencing (via Zoom or similar tool).It will also be possible to watch interviews, highlights from the conference and videos through EMD TV.
Moreover, this year you can also participate either physically or virtually to the 4 plenaries of the EU4Ocean Summit and its 4 workshops, hosted at EMD 2022 (on day 2 – 20 May), focusing on Ocean and Climate, Food from the Ocean and Healthy and Clean Oceans.
