Coastal and Maritime Tourism

Event

Our Ocean Conference

 

5-6 October 2017
Malta

 

Over 3 billion people depend directly on our seas for their livelihoods. But in reality, all of us depend on the ocean: for our water, our food, our climate and our air.

Seas and oceans enrich our identity, ensure our wellbeing and sustain a large part of the economy.

Human action has left our ocean heavily affected by pollution, overexploitation, coastal degradation and global warming. This has severe consequences for all.

First Regional Cruise Dialogue for the Baltic

 

18 October 2016, Scandio Copenhagen Hotel, Copenhagen, Denmark

 

NECSTouR had been invited to attend this event organised by the pan-European cruise dialogue. This group of dialogue obtained his impulse after that the EU Commission adopted a communication on 20 February 2014, presenting a new strategy to enhance coastal and maritime tourism in Europe. A first regional dialogue for the Mediterranean already took place in Olbia (Italy) in October 2015.
