This initiative aims to increase environmental awareness among policy makers, academics, media, NGOs and local populations, but also to promote and implement activities that, at the same time, consider fragile, ecological, social and cultural contexts and lead to sustainable coastal development.

In order to ensure a high visibility of this initiative for an active commitment to the protection of our coasts and the sea, the PAP/RAC invites prominent personalities, eminently qualified, as Ambassador for the Coast, in order to sollicit policy makers of all countries to join us. The Ambassador's role includes participating in the main Coast Day celebration and supporting efforts to raise awareness of the value of the coast and its sustainable development through interviews and messages. A new Coast Ambassador is appointed each year.

Coast Day continues to be celebrated every year in the Mediterranean. Each year the main celebration of the Mediterranean is organized in a different country, while other countries organize their own events.

Originally, October 24 was chosen as the Mediterranean Coast Day, but now it has been changed to September 25 to honor the date when Slovenia ratified the ICZM Protocol as the first Mediterranean country to do so. Now, 25 September is the date on which we celebrate the beauty of life here on our coast along the Mediterranean, and we invite you to join us and actively engage in the preservation of our sea and coasts.
