Faced with the extent of plastic pollution in the Mediterranean, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation has joined forces with the Tara Ocean, Mava, Surfrider Europe foundations and the IUCN to create the Beyond Plastic Med association.
Since 2015, BeMed has supported 92 initiatives in 15 countries around the Mediterranean. To strengthen the impact of its projects, capitalise on the experience of its network and meet a demand from the stakeholders involved, BeMed facilitates collaboration and the sharing of experience and tools by running a community of practice bringing together the organisations it supports.
BeMed also works with the private sector through its Business Club, which brings together companies wishing to commit to a plastic-free Mediterranean. The objectives of the Club are to bring together companies from different sectors and different links in the plastics value chain, to develop dialogue between scientists, companies and NGOs, and to implement actions on the ground adapted to the various local contexts in the Mediterranean. To consolidate its actions, the association is setting up the “BeMed+” project starting in 2024. Pilot actions will be carried out in two Mediterranean regions (Monastir in Tunisia and the Shkumbin river region in Albania), in collaboration with two of its founding members.
