Clean Sea LIFE
Marine pollution, Plastic pollution
Clean Sea Life was an awareness raising program on marine litter uniting all marine enthusiasts in Italy – divers, yachtsmen, fishermen, beach goers, students and citizen – in the protection of the Mediterranean sea. It was started in 2016, with an end date of 2021. The project team engaged 170 000 people in clean up and dissemination activities, over four years. Nearly 1 000 clean-up operations were organised, both large and small, of which half were organised by stakeholders themselves, along with around 1 000 dissemination events. The project team organised several large events to clean beaches and the seafloor, and a huge quantity of waste and plastic garbage was removed (about 112 tons).
