Les Assises Citoyennes de la Mer et du Littoral 2021: “The maritime economy at the crossroads: what jobs, what qualifications tomorrow?”
Organised by the network of Breton development councils and supported by the Region of Brittany, Les Assises Citoyennes de la Mer (Citizens’ Conference on the Sea and the Coast) is a forum for exchange. Its objective is to publicise and discuss the various actions carried out in terms of the development of activities linked to the sea and the coast.
For the past three years, this event has followed on from the various meetings on the sea and the coast that were organised from 2013 to 2017 by the Brittany Region. The idea behind these meetings is to allow civil society and citizens to contribute to the issues and employment prospects related to the sea and coastline. Climate change, BREXIT, European policy and the health crisis of 2020 are all factors that are shaking up the maritime sector…a sector of great economic importance in France, which has given rise to the need to open up debates and participative and contributory reflection on these subjects.
The 3rd edition of the Assises Citoyennes de la Mer et du Littoral will be held in Lorient on 5 October 2021. This year’s theme will be “The maritime economy: at the crossroads: what jobs, what qualifications tomorrow?
The programme will include a round table of experts and various workshops to examine in greater depth the subject of jobs and skills in the maritime sector in the face of various climatic, environmental, societal and economic changes. The aim is, in the long term, to contribute to local and regional policies that will have to accompany many transitions.
