The event will focus on the most relevant outcomes of the BlueMed CSA.
After intense collaborative work, the Mediterranean countries will showcase the process and results of the Pilot Initiative for a Healthy, Plastic-free Mediterranean Sea to tackle the marine litter issue. The voices of the BlueMed Pilot National Hubs and of key stakeholders will present this unique success story and envisage its future.
The BlueMed solid and widely participated cooperation process among countries led first to a co-owned Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda and then to the endorsement of the Implementation Plan. These tools are conceived to serve future activities: the Strategic Joint Actions will be presented during the conference.
The BlueMed StartUp Actions, which worked on different topics but all encompassing the BlueMed perspective, will engage in a conversation and present their feasibility studies.
The BlueMed Young Ambassadors will share their experiences and reflections and will engage in a dialogue with their colleagues from other Basins, with the aim of building future common paths, in the co-responsibility spirit of the One Planet-One Ocean approach.
The event will be organised in a lively and engaging way, making use of devoted tools to favour the active participation of all the attendees.
