THE OBJECTIVE OF THE FORUM
It will serve as a knowledge hub connecting 250 public authorities, private sector, NGOs and scientists, with one common goal: to unite forces against marine pollution. The sessions will review the latest progress on marine litter abatement and will enable further collaborative action on agreed priorities.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
MARLICE2019 is structured in four discussion blocks: Governance, Research, Circular Economy and Citizen Science. Selected experts and projects in the Mediterranean and Atlantic regions will guide the discussions, by sharing the latest progress in the fight against marine litter. Participants are invited to enrich the sessions by presenting projects and opinions, thus promoting cross-sectoral and cross-border cooperation. Participating projects and initiatives will have the chance to be included in the MARLICE proceedings which will be widely disseminated and promoted by key organizations concerned with marine litter.
The 3-day forum will offer plenty of networking opportunities to discuss your project, learn about others and connect with key representatives to form long-lasting collaboration, as well as exploring key aspects of marine litter in a unique experience.
FINAL PUBLICATION AND DATABASE
Besides taking part in the event, participants will be included in 3 important publications: the MARLICE19 proceedings (e-book) , the MARLICE19 COMMUNITY (list of all participants and related organizations and projects), and finally the MARLICE19 Communication book (ebook) with articles submitted.
