Maritime and Archipelagic Nation Awareness Month

September 1, 2021 to September 30, 2021

Proclamation No. 316 is in line with Article XII, Section 2 of the Constitution, which stipulates that the State is mandated to protect the nation’s marine wealth in its archipelagic waters, territorial sea, and exclusive economic zone and reserve its use exclusively for Filipino citizens.

This year’s theme “Our Seas, Our Livelihood, Our Heritage: Connecting Lives and Nations” highlights the nation’s rich maritime history. For the entire month of September, the MARINA and other concerned agencies will be holding several face-to-face and virtual activities designed to inform the general public about the Philippines’ maritime and archipelagic features.
