Bridging the North Sea, a project approved under the Straits Committee’s fourth call for proposals, held its official launch on 10th May 2023 at the Château-musée in Boulogne-sur-Mer. The event brought together the project partners, representatives from the town of Boulogne-sur-Mer and from the Straits Committee.

Representing the Straits Executive Committee at the event, Ms Mireille Hingrez-Céréda, First Vice-president of the Département du Pas-de-Calais, was delighted with the work initiated and highlighted the need to share it as widely as possible: “This project that has brought us together serves to remind of our shared history where challenges we faced in our past are ones we are confronted with again today.”
