SDSN Mediterranean joins UfM to celebrate the first-ever Day of the Mediterranean

The first-ever Day of the Mediterranean will be celebrated this 28 November 2021.

This new international day was declared by all Union for the Mediterranean countries to provide a unique momentum to foster a shared Mediterranean identity, strengthen ties between the two shores and promote dialogue and cooperation across our region.

The Day of the Mediterranean aims to act as a timely reminder that our similarities largely overcome our differences, the cultural dimension being an important component of who we are and where we come from. It provides an opportunity to celebrate achievements, embrace diversity, to strengthen ties between our two shores and to deepen our understanding of each other.

On Sunday 28 November SDSN Mediterranean is joining UfM to celebrate the first #MediterraneanDay in History!

The Mediterranean Sea has long been a place of exchange – exchange of ideas, knowledge, trade, learning and culture. Looking to the future, the Day of the Mediterranean also offers a unique moment to showcase issues of interest, mobilise political will and commit resources to address common challenges in the region.

You can be part of this too, check out all the events on the agenda.

Just like our Mediterranean boasts an unparalleled canvas of world-class cultural heritage sites and a wealth of traditions, it is also a hotspot of biodiversity and geodiversity, and home to a multitude of unique habitats and species. To celebrate the Mediterranean is to celebrate life in its full amplitude and plenitude. This ancient sea around which we live has given the world its greatest civilizations, its earliest academies and universities, its first dramatists and philosophers and its most celebrated trade centres.
