"The Sea, our Capital" is a program created by the City of Marseille and IUCN's French Committee within the framework of IMPAC3. The wealth of activities it includes reflects the debt Marseille owes to the sea.

In short:

  • 90 events from September to October in Marseille and its surroundings: hikes, kayak outings, science cafés, exhibitions...
  • 25 artists gathered at the Pavillon M for "The Sea Is Source of Inspiration";
  • Conferences, seminars, and more.
