The “Training Programme on Regional Ocean Governance for the Mediterranean, Black, Baltic and Caspian Seas” builds upon the more than 30 years experience of the International Ocean Institute in conducting training and capacity building programmes on ocean governance. The theme of the course draws upon the conduct of maritime affairs at the regional level in a holistic and integrated approach, following the principles enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, targeting the Millennium Development Goals, and the follow-up to RIO+20. It focuses on linkages between natural, social and economic sciences, the research-management interface and the support of technology to enable the effective achievement of ocean management and sustainable development.

The course also considers the implications of regional policies including the EU Integrated Maritime Policy for the European regional seas, with a science-based and holistic approach to policy undertakings and implementation, and brings to the forefront the characteristics of seas as different and sensitive as the Mediterranean, Black, Baltic and Caspian in ocean governance issues.

At 6:51 am EDT on June 21st, 2014, the first day of summer, we launched 100 Days of Blue: The Blue Mind Book Tour.

During these 100 days Blue Mind Ambassadors will commit to safely spending time near, in, on, or under their favorite water (any water) each day for 100 days, sharing their experiences with those around them, and spreading the Blue Mind message.

Our goal is to change the way people feel, think, talk, and ACT about water, emphasizing a deeper understanding of the vast but underappreciated emotional and cognitve benefits of healthy waterways and oceans.

The research and experiences behind this way of thinking fill the pages of Blue MInd.

With a perfectly organized dunes event EUCC France and around hundred participants including European dune managers and researchers from nine countries, we looked back on 25 years of EUCC (Coastal & Marine), founded in 1989 as the “European Union for Dune conservation and Coastal Management” (EUDC ). During the presentations and during the field visit to the dunes of Merlimont-Berck many stressed the pioneering role that the EUDC / EUCC played, since the first European Dune Congress in Leiden (1987). And there were delicious cakes with candles for 20 years EUCC-France and to celebrate 10 years EUCC Mediterranean Centre.
