Workshop Other Sea Uses

Workshop ‘Other sea uses’

Connecting Seas conference, 13 February 2019

As part of the Connecting Seas Conference, you are invited to participate in a workshop on ‘Other Sea Uses’. These uses are often defined as activities and services of users other than the major sectors, such as energy, shipping or the environmental sector. Some of these are also considered as voices less heard, especially in the maritime economy. This workshop will explore a number of uses taking place in the North Sea and Baltic Sea regions, which are currently investigated by European projects. Different case-studies will give examples ranging from marine cultural heritage to educational aspects in Maritime Spatial Planning.

Through a round-table format, participants will discuss challenges and opportunities of other sea uses in European sea basins. This interactive discussion will also give the opportunity to share experience of participants beyond the scope of this workshop.
