The final conference of the “BlueMed” project - “One Mediterranean: practices, results and strategies for a common Sea” is taking place these days.
Three days to talk about the European initiative dedicated at promoting sustainable and shared development of the entire sea-based economy in the Mediterranean area, which led to the realisation of a shared Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda and a detailed Implementation Plan presenting the shared priority goals. Among the various initiatives, there is also the launch of a Pilot Initiative for a Healthy, Plastic-free Mediterranean Sea aimed at mapping and networking the initiatives of the various countries to tackle marine litter issue.
Some footage of the film concerning the ghost nets was granted by the LIFE-GHOST project for the realization of the conference official video, which can be viewed at the following link:
