CLAIM at the Marine Litter in the Danube and the Black Sea region conference
On 4 November 2021, the member of the European Parliament (MEP) Carmen Avram is hosting an online conference on “Marine Litter in the Danube and the Black Sea region: Concrete Solutions from the Regions.” The event is co-organised by the European Parliament’s Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup, the Balkan and Black Sea Commission of the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions of Europe (CPMR BBSC) and the International Centre for Black Sea Studies (ICBSS).
The aim of the event is to discuss and come up with tailored and concrete proposals to tackle marine litter in the region. Additionally, various stakeholders from the wider Black Sea region and beyond will have the opportunity to share their experience and exchange ideas with representatives from the European institutions and encourage multilateral cooperation in the framework of different EU initiatives and programmes implemented in the area.
The conference will take the form of a moderated exchange with key regional, political, and private stakeholders from the Danube and Black Sea regions, amongst whom are representatives from a number of Horizon 2020 projects, including CLAIM.
Along with the project leaders of other leading Horizon 2020 projects, CLAIM’s coordinator George Triantaphyllidis will also have the opportunity to introduce the project’s aims and technologies for preventing marine plastic litter from entering the seas and oceans.
