Projects’ launching conference is organized by CORILA, IUAV and CNR-ISMAR, in Venice, at University of Venice (IUAV).

The MSP-GREEN project contributes to align maritime spatial plans to the ambition of the European Green Deal (EGD) by creating a framework for plans as marine enablers of the EGD. The framework will provide a cross-cutting approach to the EGD key topics relevant for the marine environment and the sustainable transition of blue economy: climate change, circular blue economy, protection of marine biodiversity, marine renewable energies, sustainable food provision. Recommendations on how to strengthen the EGD ambition of EU MSP plans will be prepared. The sea basins’ dimension will be promoted by considering environmental, socio-economic, and cultural specificities also, via dedicated Ocean Literacy driven communication.
