Long days, sunshine and hot weather invite us once again to the beach. To find refreshment in the sea. The sea which we have been taking for granted for so long. Sadly, the sea that we all love so much is facing serious threats and it is high time we invested more efforts to preserving it for the future generations. The Mediterranean Coast Day, organised region-wide since 2007, is an excellent awareness-raising campaign that has achieved excellent results.
This year it will be organised in Tivat, Montenegro on September 25 under the high patronage of Mr. Filip Vujanović, President of Montenegro, who will personally attend the event.
The main topic of this year’s event will be “Protect our Sea”, and both official and casual parts of the event will be focused on it. The celebration is being co-organised by the PAP/RAC and the Public Enterprise for Coastal Zone Management of Montenegro, under the auspices of the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism of Montenegro. Invited participants include Mediterranean governmental representatives, UN Environment/MAP representatives, distinguished foreign guests, diplomatic corps and representatives of international organisations in Montenegro, as well as local authorities, NGOs and local associations.
Draft programme of the event is available here
We are also pleased to announce that Coast Day celebration will be organised in Tunisia, while Slovenia is organising its already traditional Coast Week.
