EUCC - The Coastal Union Germany

The German branch 'EUCC - Die Küsten Union Deutschland e.V.' was established as an association (NGO) in 2002. Our main objective is to strengthen German activities within the field of Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) by bridging the gap between coastal science and practice.

EUCC-Germany provides relevant information, consults and educates coastal practitioners, hosts workshops and conferences and runs demonstration projects. We further aim to raise international awareness of German ICZM activities.

Our main office is located in Warnemuende on the coast of the Baltic Sea. The board consists of representatives from both the North and Baltic Sea coasts. Please feel free to contact us.

Meer & Küste
With the informational magazine “Meer & Küste” EUCC-Germany seeks to inform the public about the current condition, problems, solutions, and developments regarding the Baltic Sea and its coasts. The magazine is written for tourists, coastal residents, those interested in our coasts, and coastal professionals.
EUCC-Germany publishes a free German-language Küsten Newsletter (The Coastal Newsletter) which gives an overview of current developments in the field of coastal and marine research and management. This newsletter is released every two months, and has more than 1300 subscribers from the fields of politic, administration, and research. In the newsletter you will find articles of various length and depth. In addition, we have probed the recently released scientific literature and list oncoming German and international events.

We offer online training modules (in German) about coastal issues set out for ESD (education for sustainable development).

A software tool for authors has been developed by EUCC-Deutschland and is ready to be applied in different contexts. Test the programme here: Test module for guests
