This is a kind invitation to attend our Online Workshop on “MEDITERRANEAN SOLUTIONS TOWARDS ZERO POLLUTION IMPACTS ON BIODIVERSITY AND HEALTH”, organized by the Mediterranean Biodiversity Protection Community. This workshop will be held on 4 June 2021 starting at 9h am CET with the active engagement of the partners and associated partners in the Mediterranean Biodiversity Protection Community of projects and selected international initiatives active in the area.

HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?

Registration is required. Only participants registered by 15 May 2021 will be receiving the link and instructions to access the online workshop and materials. The workshop will be held in English and will be recorded.

WHAT IS THE OBJECTIVE?

This online workshop is meant to bring together key players in the fight against marine pollution in the Mediterranean region.  In this workshop, Mediterranean initiatives and institutions will showcase evidence on marine pollution impacts on biodiversity and health, as well as the policy frameworks and governance models currently in place, and they will debate specific solutions and approaches to successfully achieve the transition towards a zero pollution impact on people and the planet, in brief:

  • Marine litter threats for our environment, health and livelihoods,
  • Legislative measures tackling marine litter in Europe and the Mediterranean, and
  • Solutions to reduce marine litter impacts in the Mediterranean.

 WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?

This online workshop is a unique opportunity to learn about current initiatives and tools to tackle the impact on marine pollution and adopt better practices for a better future for the Mediterranean Biodiversity and people to achieve concrete results with an ecosystem-based approach to biodiversity protection and management in the Mediterranean.

WHO IS ORGANIZING IT?

The partners in the Interreg Med Biodiversity Protection Community project, in this case the Lead Partner ETC-UMA, with the support of enthusiastic partners like MedCities and Plan Bleu who will be actively supporting preparations and the discussion.

WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?

Coordination and knowledge are utterly necessary to build a common path for action. As the current situation with the pandemics is stopping us from organising presential workshops, we will be organizing these online until the situation allows us otherwise. You can read the draft agenda in the related files, for your consideration.

For your appointment with us on 4 June 2021, please register here and we will get back in touch with more.

 Thank you in advance for your participation and we look forward to hearing from you.
