The 2021 Turkish coordination of the Common Maritime Agenda for the Black Sea organised the Webinar on Underwater Cultural Heritage and Exploration of Potential Sites in the Black Sea on 13 April 2021 – 14h00 – 16h30 Turkish Time (13:00-15:30 CET). 

The workshop was a great opportunity to share views on the topic and discuss relevant project ideas in line with the goals and priorities set by the Common Maritime Agenda (CMA).

More specifically, the discussion touched upon the Goal II of the CMA, by fostering knowledge on underwater heritage as a means to improve its protection and potential synergies with sustainable tourism across the Black Sea.

Concrete inputs were provided for further collaboration across blue economy partners in the Black Sea and beyond, bridging research needs, areas of innovation for business operators, and need for further actions by local authorities across the region.

As a result of this event, the set-up of an informal working group in this area is under consideration, as a way to develop further cooperation and associated projects on this matter.
