Workshop is organized within the project platform Capacity4MSP and will take place on 3 March 2021 online.
The workshop aims to present and discuss ideas on multi-level governance potential for managing land-sea interactions with the aim to foster and strengthen blue economy in the coastal areas. Among the workshop participants there will be MSP planners and authorities, regional & local representatives of governance from coastal areas with interest in themes of coastal and marine tourism, offshore wind park developers, cultural heritage experts, researchers; representatives of different sectors (offshore energy, tourism) as well as other sectoral experts.
