The aim of the event is to raise awareness of the importance of the sea, the coast and its hinterland, and of natural resources and economic potential they represent, but also to outline risks to which the sea and the coast are exposed due to natural phenomena and human actions. The event provides an opportunity to bring together practitioners, experts and the general public from the Baltic, Danube, Adriatic-Ionian and Alpine macro-regions and to discuss environmental connectivity and other macro-regional challenges as well as the communication between macro-regional strategies.
