Euronews OCEAN Season 5, Episode 2 – Ports and seaside cities

Ports are the heart of our global trade, connecting the world and fuelling economic growth. But with this power comes a problem – a massive carbon footprint. As Europe sets sail to becoming climate-neutral by 2050, how can our ports, the gatekeepers of commerce, join this green transition and help build a more sustainable future? In this episode, we visit one of Europe's largest ports — the Port of Antwerp-Bruges in Belgium, coordinating the EU project PIONEERS demonstrating a range of sustainable solutions — from renewable power generation and cleaner vessel propulsion to digitalisation and smart technologies, improving port efficiency with sensors and AI-based solutions.

OCEAN is a Euronews magazine in collaboration with the Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (MARE). It features monthly 8-minute videos, where we discover fascinating projects and developments related to the ocean and coastal communities.

Broadcast since 2019, OCEAN features episodes on marine protected areas, small-scale fisheries, ocean energy, aquaculture, IUU fishing, sustainable fisheries and much more. Missed one? Check them out on the Euronews website! You will also find some nice extras about these topics.
