Flanders launches survey on the Mission Area Healthy Oceans, Seas, Coastal and Inland Waters

A new survey asks the Flemish community to describe the role and importance of the ocean and waters in their life, with a particular focus on the North Sea. The outcomes of the survey will feed into the preparation work for the EU Mission to restore healthy ocean and waters.

Have your say (in Dutch). The survey closes on 18 October 2020.


On 22 September, the Mission Board led by Pascal Lamy handed over to the European Commission their proposal for the mission area Healthy Oceans, Seas, Coastal and Inland Waters entitled Mission Starfish 2030: Restore our Ocean and Waters.
