A marine litter symposium that made a difference

Over 200 enthusiastic participants were in Amsterdam’s EYE Film Institute on Dec 3 to experience the CleanSea Symposium and Premiere of the CleanSea documentary film – a milestone in the first EU FP7 interdisciplinary research project on Marine Litter, led by Dr. Heather Leslie of IVM.

The CleanSea Marine Litter Symposium & Film Premiere was attended by well over 200 participants from science, policy, industry, civil society and the media in the largest cinema of EYE Film Institute in Amsterdam on December 3, 2015. The interdisciplinary research carried out in the European FP7 CleanSea Project was presented, along with a film produced as part of the project. If you missed it you can still catch it on youtube.

EUCC Mediterranean Centre co-organized with this event and presented some of the work done on economic instruments to tackle marine litter with a presentation by Pedro Fernández.
