EUCC is dedicated to conserving and maintaining healthy seas and attractive coasts for both people and nature; and, that people can enjoy these environments in a socially safe and sound way.
November 2003, the EUCC Mediterranean Centre was officially inaugurated in Barcelona (Spain) with the objective of supporting EUCC’s activities, EUCC members and its National Branches in this geographical area, as well as developing new initiatives in cooperation with other NGOs, research institutes and government agencies.
Our priorities in the Mediterranean are the promotion and implementation of coastal and marine ecosystems restoration, sustainable development and education and training. To this aim, EUCC Mediterranean Centre will continue promoting the development of ICZM policy, strategies and plans as an instrument to achieve sustainable development along European coasts. Our actions are implemented in close cooperation with EUCC International Secretariat – Coastal & Marine Union (EUCC) in Leiden, the Netherlands.
Furthermore, EUCC Mediterranean Centre has been integrated in the ECNC Group, one of Europe’s largest groupings of expertise and experience on nature, biodiversity, sustainability and coastal and marine issues.
