In het weekend van 26 juni staan de Natuur en Milieufederaties van Groningen, Friesland en Noord-Holland, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen en Visit Wadden stil bij de 12e verjaardag van de UNESCO Werelderfgoed status van de Waddenzee.
Wadden Sea National Park, Denmark
The excellent work, in support of education, carried out by the members of the International Wadden Sea School in the past 17 years was highlighted as part of this side event which was co-organised between Germany and South Korea.
The webinar examined the many aspects of preserving darkness in the Wadden Sea region, not least the conservation benefits. The event is the result of a close collaboration between the trilateral Partnership Hub and the Programme towards a rich Wadden Sea (PRW).
WG-Swimway and invited guests drafted a policy statement based on existing guidelines and regulations with a direct link to the Trilateral Fish Targets at European level and how these have been implemented per country and trying to analyse their contribution to the realization of these targets.
As Annika Bostelmann will be on parental leave until late autumn 2021, CWSS is joined by a new colleague, Ditte Hviid, to take over as temporary Communications and Outreach Officer.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the 32nd meeting of the Wadden Sea Board, postponed from November 2020, was held online on 4 March 2021.
