Atlantic Stakeholder Platform Virtual Conference 19th November 2020

The 7th Atlantic Stakeholder Platform Conference (ASPC2020) is a fully virtual event taking place on 19th November. The event will signal the start of Ireland's Presidency of the Atlantic Strategy Committee (ASC) in 2021, which will be the first year of the Atlantic Action Plan 2.0. This new plan has an increased focus on "Atlantic ports" and further details will be presented at a dedicated workshop at the event.

The 7th Conference is the first occasion to launch the Atlantic Action Plan 2.0, a revamped maritime strategy to foster a sustainable blue economy and the EU Green Deal. It will bring together high­ level officials, renowned experts and leading entrepreneurs to talk about the new Atlantic maritime strategy, particularly in context to the participating countries’ recovery efforts. The conference will also feature perspectives, initiatives and actions from stakeholders in the EU Atlantic countries - France, Ireland, Spain and Portugal - on the path toward socially inclusive models of sustainable development and job creation, while safeguarding marine and coastal environments and securing a healthy ocean.

Furthermore, ASPC2020 will celebrate the 2020 Atlantic Project Awards, the prestigious awards honouring success stories achieved by projects in the geographical area covered by the Atlantic Strategy and related to the implementation of the Atlantic Action Plan 2.0.
