EU marine governance gets a boost as new European research project sets sail

EU marine governance must evolve to meet the goals and objectives established in the European Green Deal. A shift is needed from the current largely fragmented nature of marine governance toward a more cross-cutting and agile arrangement, one that is in sync with wider developments taking place at sea, at shores and on land. PERMAGOV, a recently launched Horizon Europe project, sets out to achieve that by piloting a novel multi-level governance approach for various regional seas and national waters around Europe, targeting four areas of key importance to sustainable development: maritime transport, marine energy, marine life, and marine litter.

Det er med stor sorg at meddele, at Preben Maegaard er død, 85 år gammel. Preben sov stille ind efter længere tids sygdom.
Preben Maegaard lived at the Nordic Folkecenter for Renewable Energy, a central place in the heart of his extensive life’s work, where he gathered enthusiasts who, like him, agreed that it was not enough just to be against nuclear power – one had to create an alternative.
