OUR MISSION


Conserving and sustainably using Mediterranean coastal and marine resources.


 

The Mediterranean Sea is home to some of the world's most remarkable environmental resources, unique cultural heritage and exceptional biodiversity. But it is also fragile and very sensitive to human impacts and climate change. Its development is concentrated on its coastal areas, subject to multiple pressures. The fragility of the Mediterranean call for a mobilization of all the actors. The anticipated magnitude of climate change and the political, social and economic difficulties make a new vision for conservation and sustainability of our Sea necessary.

This is why MEDSEA has built a network of passion-driven people who are committed to build on new models, partnerships and strategies on the paths of transition and concrete actions to be implemented for a desirable future of the Mediterranean Basin.

Our focus is on the following 5 key areas
