Launch of the Danube & Black Sea Lighthouse

The EU Mission ‘Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030’ officially launched a new ‘lighthouse’ in the Danube and Black Sea. It will bring together community and sectoral stakeholders in the region to find solutions to restore the health of the water system.

The event took place in the Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest (Romania) on 3rd and 4th of April 2023 and was attended by over 200 participants. It was co-organised by the European Commission, the Romanian government, and the EcoDaLLi CSA.

Mission lighthouses are sites to pilot, demonstrate, develop, and deploy the Mission activities across EU seas and river basins. With the support of EcoDaLLi, the Danube-Black Sea lighthouse will aim to centralise governance structures along the Danube river basin, and foster a stronger innovation ecosystem for improved ecological restoration, protection and preservation.
