TOWARDS A PLASTIC FREE ARCHIPELAGO – a community of plastic free islands

TOWARDS A PLASTIC FREE ARCHIPELAGO – a community of plastic free islands

The objective of this project is to create and maintain a collaboration between local actors and municipalities of Croatian islands that fight to reduce plastic pollution.

In order to achieve this goal, the project has 3 main axes:

– Connecting ongoing field initiatives on Zlarin and Krapanj, building the capacity of local actors and supporting the implementation of actions to change the behavior of the local population.

–  Advocate with the directors of the tourist offices, the presidents of the municipal councils of the islands of Zlarin and Krapanj, and representatives of the Council for Sustainable Development of the island of Zlarin to facilitate the implementation of the directive against single-use plastics in Croatia.  The association will establish an inter-island Krapanj-Zlarin council for sustainable waste management.

– Form a broader alliance involving different Croatian archipelagos. This network will allow the sharing of experience, tools and resources between small islands in transition to a plastic-free life.
