SAVE THE DATE – Wednesday 24 March

As part of #MonacoOceanWeek, BeMed is organising a morning of online events (translation in French or English)!

On the programme:

9:30-10:30: Conference The Mediterranean, a sea of plastic: what solutions ?

By presenting the conclusions of its latest report “The Mediterranean: Mare Plasticum”, the IUCN will review the latest figures showing the severity of plastic pollution in the Mediterranean. This report will be shared with the entire BeMed network of stakeholders. The 2020 winners will then present the solutions they are implementing to fight against this scourge.

10:45-11:20: Press conference – announcement of the BeMed 2021 awardees

In 2020, with the health crisis, the consumption of single-use plastics has greatly increased. While some are essential to slow the spread of the virus, it is important to remember that plastic pollution is one of the major environmental blights of our century. To continue to act and avoid amplifying an already serious problem, BeMed has renewed its call for micro-initiatives and unveils its new awardees.
