The very first Ocean Week Madeira is here
to celebrate the Oceans.
The role of the digital nomad communities in Madeira, and worldwide, is becoming more significant and while becoming a resident in a new place, the need to maintain a healthy exchange with the local communities surrounding them is increasing. Thus, Ocean Week
Madeira is a bridge between local and nomad communities and an initiative to work together for preservation of our oceans. As well, it is the way Nomads give back to the island, its nature, and amazing people that have so generously welcomed us here.
At Digital Nomads Madeira Islands, Nomads Giving Back and CET Atlantic we
think that one great way of giving back is by encouraging nomads and local organisations to engage in impactful events that will increase their connectivity with communities living with, by, and in the ocean. A perfect occasion for doing this is
through environmental impact events around World Ocean Day on 8 June 2021, which
aims to raise awareness on environmental issues concerning our oceans, in particular,
Thus, the consortium has teamed up to launch a week-long, island-wide celebration of our Oceans.
Ocean Week Madeira, which will take place across Madeira during 8 – 13
June 2021, kicking-off on the World Ocean Day.
Event Calendar includes two environmental impact events (beach cleanup actions in
Calheta and Machico), mindfulness and sport activities, an Ocean Splash Contest,
cultural events, workshops, a documentary film screening followed by a debate of Marine Biologists and activists, a networking event for travel, tech, cultural, creative, and NGO sector stakeholders, and a talk about Sustainable Tourism with presentation of good practice.

Ocean Week Madeira is a collection of activities in, by or with the ocean, carefully

Finally, it is an initiative by the team of volunteers from literally all walks of life,cultural and professional background, and origin, be it nomad, expat, or local, who happen to be in the same place at the same time during pilot project Digital Nomads Madeira Islands.-
Ocean Week Madeira kindly invites you to join and report about the activities, and inform the members of the public about the happenings in Ponta do Sol, Calheta and Machico during the week-long celebration of our ocean.
