European Maritime Day (EMD) In My Country is an important part of the wave of ocean awareness and activism that has been rising steadily in recent years, and the events under its brand have become more and more popular, attracting more than 25.000 participants every year. Local activities such as beach cleanups, guided tours of ports, art exhibitions, workshops, conferences, seminars, exhibitions on maritime themes, ocean literacy actions, eco-tours and walks in areas with significant maritime heritage, boat excursions, visits to maritime museums, ships, aquaria, shipyards, etc. aim to a wide audience across Europe, with a “fun and game” component directly appealing to a younger public.
CMMI has successfully won the organization of the event for Cyprus. The institute has planned a number of events to take place between 17-21 of June 2021, in the city of Larnaca, to celebrate the connection of both Larnaca and Cyprus to the sea.
