ACTIVITIES

Marinescape Forum Piraeus

The Marinescapes Forum Piraeus was held on the 26th and 27th May 2015 and was the second of a series of Marinescape Forums organised by CIVILSCAPE. In Piraeus, it was co-organised with  MedINA on the occasion of the European Maritime Days which was held in the same location on the 28th and 29th May, as a way of bringing attention to need for action in order to preserve the character of Mediterranean marinescapes and coastal landscapes, as defined by the affected communities. The Forum concluded with the Piraeus Statement on Mediterranean Marinescapes which set out the needs and the principles for sustainable management and planning of Mediterranean Marinescapes, coastal landscapes and islandscapes, and considered the establishment of the Mediterranean Marinescapes Observatory. The conclusions of the Forum were presented during the European Maritime Days on the 28th May in the morning session “Coastal Communities and Blue Society”. The Marinsecape Forum was made possible with the support of the MAVA Foundation and the scientific contribution of the Landscape Research Group. It was also placed under the aegis of the Piraeus Municipality.
