Poster – Blueprint demonstration for co-created effective, efficient and resilient networks of MPAs

BLUE4ALL places stakeholders at the "steering wheel" from the outset of the MPA process, with adequate interaction and co-creation as the starting point. By gathering lessons learned from 25 information sites and Living Labs located in the Mediterranean Sea, Baltic Sea, and North-East Atlantic regions, BLUE4ALL will develop user-friendly platform for MPA managers and authorities for preserving and restoring the marine environment.

As EU Member States aim to legally protect 30% of Europe’s sea and land areas, BLUE4ALL proposes a new approach to Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), aligning a bottom-up approach with the top-down approach to regulatory expectations as defined by the EU Biodiversity Strategy and national initiatives.

Our mission is to address the challenges faced in marine conservation and restoration in Europe including the social acceptability of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), resulting with robust and replicable tools based on science. BLUE4ALL is a HORIZON Europe Ocean Mission project that began on January 1st, 2023 and will run until December 2026.
