About the Day of the Mediterranean
28th November 2021 will mark the first annual celebration of the Day of the Mediterranean, recognising Mediterranean culture and embracing the rich diversity of the region. In November 2020, the 42 Member States of the Union for the Mediterranean declared the 28th of November as the official Day of the Mediterranean, to be marked annually, calling upon everyone that identifies with the Mediterranean to celebrate the lasting legacy of this age-old agora of cultural dialogue, wisdom and humanism. Home to more than 480 million people living across 3 continents, with a coastline of 46,000km, the region offers a wealth of human and natural diversity unparalleled anywhere else in the world. Communities and cultures have long exchanged ideas, trade and learning across this common sea, and this Day aims to strengthen these ties, promote dialogue and highlight achievements in the region, as well as showcasing issues of interest and mobilising political will and resources to address shared challenges.
“The Mediterranean is our home and our livelihood, our history and our future,” said UfM Secretary General, Nasser Kamel. “We’re facing great challenges as a region but we also hold great potential, and the Day of the Mediterranean is a fantastic opportunity to rejoice in all that we have done and can do if we work together.” Commemorating the anniversary of the Barcelona Process, which launched the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership on this date in 1995, the Day aims to shine a spotlight on regional achievements and initiatives undertaken by governments, international and regional organisations, international finance institutions, development agencies, civil society and private sector organisations – anyone and everyone working to enhance cooperation and integration in the area. The ultimate objective of the Day is to celebrate our diversity, show that our similarities outweigh our differences, and to foster a sense of togetherness and community.
