Innovative solutions to tackle marine litter

The Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) requires EU Member States to ensure that, by 2020, "properties and quantities of marine litter do not cause harm to the coastal and marine environment".

With the MFSD, the European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy and the Circular Plastics Alliance as a starting point this meeting will inform about the European Commission’s and the industry’s thinking regarding marine litter. There will also be presentations on innovative regional examples tackling the problem of marine litter.

More information will follow shortly. 

Do you have an interesting project, best practice example or study on marine litter that you would like to showcase at the meeting? Or would you like to host the meeting? Please contact Anna at the Secretariat.

Deadline to submit presentation proposals is Friday the 23 August.
