The Blue Growth Community and PSAMIDES project organize the “Greening the Cruise and Recreational Boating sectors in the Mediterranean” Capitalization event, which will take place on the 13th of April 2022 in a hybrid format, in Sète, France.
The Mediterranean represents 27% of global maritime traffic and hosts 10% of the world’s cruises. The growth of the cruise sector is particularly strong: it is the most important sector of the tourism economy in terms of gross value added and job creation. The Mediterranean Sea is also a popular destination for recreational boating. Most of the recreational boats that circulate in the Mediterranean are less than 24 meters long, but the number of large yatchs is increasing, in line with global trends.
To encourage and support the transition of these two sectors towards environmental and social sustainability, PSAMIDES Project and the Interreg Med Blue Growth Community have decided to organize together a capitalization event to highlight key recommendations and to showcase some concrete solutions developed within the framework of these projects.
