From 4 to 9 October, the Sailing to Barcelona Village will provide a diversity of onboard and onshore activities illustrating the participants’ action-oriented contributions to marine conservation. The “Harbour Village” will serve the dual goal of acting as a hub for a variety of Congress gatherings, as well as engaging Barcelona’s diverse public and raising awareness in a city that prides itself as being open to the sea.

Moored at Barcelona’s main harbour, next to the city’s heart, Sailing to Barcelona boats will be the centre of activities during six days, hosting interactive educational events onboard and serving as an informal and creative meeting point for World Conservation Congress experts. Onshore, a tent next to the dock will present marine-related photo exhibits and short film projections.
