This 28 of November, join us for the Day of the Mediterranean


The Day of the Mediterranean provides a yearly opportunity to promote intercultural exchanges, celebrate cooperation, embrace diversity and strengthen ties between our two shores. We celebrate our shared identity, common heritage and love for the Mediterranean.

It is a reminder that our similarities largely overcome our differences and that we all share a Mediterranean identity

The Mediterranean, a journey through the senses

When asked what the Mediterranean means to you, everyone’s answer will be different, and yet a reminder of a shared identity. The music and food that can immediately evoke fond memories. Sitting in the shade of an olive tree or looking out across any of the many unique skylines in a moment of peace and connection with nature. Transcending cultures and generations, the possibilities are endless.

So, how do you feel? Which of your senses are stirred by just that word, Mediterranean?

  • Shoot a short video,  share a picture or a post and tell us… Which of your senses are stirred by the Mediterranean?

  • Share it on social media and don’t forget to tag #MediterraneanDay

  • We want to hear from you! Your post/tweet will be showcased in this page!

Just like our Mediterranean boasts an unparalleled canvas of world-class cultural heritage sites and a wealth of traditions, it is also a hotspot of biodiversity and geodiversity, and home to a multitude of unique habitats and species. 

To celebrate the Mediterranean is to celebrate life in its full amplitude and plenitude. This ancient sea around which we live has given the world its greatest civilizations, its earliest academies and universities, its first dramatists and philosophers and its most celebrated trade centres.

The Day of the Mediterranean aims to create an annual unique momentum to provide visibility to the positive cooperation stories in the region. It is also a reminder that we all share a Mediterranean identity, the cultural dimension being an important component of who we are and where we come from.

It provides an opportunity to launch projects and initiatives as well as to hold events, roundtables, exhibitions and festivals across the region to strengthen ties between our shores, promoting intercultural exchanges and embracing diversity,

What can I do?

Everyone has a role to play. Whether you are an organisation working in the field of cooperation, a public administration, a private entity or a citizen in love with the Mediterranean, you can be part of the movement!
