Support Team for the Atlantic Strategy, European Commission
The Atlantic Action Plan aims to revitalise the marine and maritime economy in the Atlantic Ocean area. It shows how the EU's Atlantic Member States, their regions and the Commission can help create sustainable growth in coastal regions and drive forward the "blue economy" while preserving the environmental and ecological stability of the Atlantic Ocean. As part of the implementation of the Atlantic Action Plan, the European Commission invited stakeholders to share their practical knowledge and ideas at the Atlantic Stakeholder Platform conference which took place on 29/10 in Brest, France. The stakeholder platform is an annual event and the central hub for stakeholders of the Atlantic Strategy to meet, greet, seek ways of cooperation, share information and secure funding.
