New video release: EMODnet supporting sustainable blue tourism
Europe’s seas and coasts have long supported a thriving tourism sector, employing more people than any other blue economy sector in the EU.
But the marine and coastal environments that support Europe’s coastal tourism sector are coming under increasing pressure, both from climate change and human activities.
EMODnet, the European marine observation and data network has been gathering data about our marine and coastal environments for over 10 years and making this valuable information freely available.
The COVID 19 pandemic paralysed the EU’s tourism sector, but there is now an opportunity to rebuild this sector in a way that is more sustainable and respectful of our marine & coastal environments.
As a trusted source of marine and coastal information, EMODnet can support the EU’s blue tourism sector to develop new, more sustainable activities - and in doing so - create a more ocean aware and ocean literate public.
