  • Information activities on maritime skills or maritime research projects
  • Information activities on sustainable coastal tourism

  • Sailing/surfing/kite surfing lessons for children, sailing awareness campaigns
  • Reading clubs, art contests, art exhibitions, photo competitions, dance performances, street shows, urban games, stand-up performances, theatrical plays, concerts – as long as the sea is the main theme
  • Education and artistic activities for school children
  • Labs for pupils where they learn how the ships are built and how to create their own prototypes of boats
  • Events promoting plastic free life
  • Marine camps for teenagers
  • Any other activity for the public with the sea as a central theme and held between April and June 2019

Who can organise an event?
Organisers may be national, regional or local authorities; academic or research institutes; universities; schools, nautical education schools; non-governmental organisations; port authorities, maritime museums, clusters, consultants, businesses; aquaria; theatres, arts centres; nautical sports clubs; FLAGs, RTD projects, fishermen, and so on.

How to organise an event?
Apply using this form before 15 February 2019. Provide the title, date and location of your event, its target audience and a short description of how it addresses the maritime theme, how it is promoted and the web link to the event.
