The Coastal and Marine Union (EUCC)

The Coastal & Marine Union (EUCC) is an association with 2700 members and member organisations in 40 countries. Founded in 1989 with the aim of promoting coastal conservation by bridging the gap between scientists, environmentalists, site managers, planners and policy makers, it has grown since then into the largest network of coastal practitioners and experts in Europe, with 15 National Branches and offices in seven countries. Our working area is Europe, the Mediterranean and Black Sea and other neighbouring regions.

The Coastal & Marine Union (EUCC) is dedicated to conserving and maintaining healthy seas and attractive coasts for both people and nature. EUCC advocates best practice by developing coastal and marine policies, mobilising experts and stakeholders, providing advice and information, and implementing demonstration projects.

The Coastal & Marine Union (EUCC) is directly involved in formulating innovative European coastal policy aimed at a sustainable use of the coastline whilst protecting areas of high natural values. The work is being primarily conducted in the European Union and the regional seas – the eastern Atlantic seaboard, the Baltic Sea, the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea.

The Coastal & Marine Union (EUCC) as well as some of its regional centers and national branches publishes Coastal & Marine-News by bi-monthly newsletters for its members, for stakeholders and for the press.
