"Plastic at sea, solutions on the island"

marine ecology & plastic pollution

25th june - 1st July 2023

We are going to initiate Phase II of our workshop strategy: Project elaboration and testing on the island of Elba. During the week of our workshop we are elaborating in small groups under the supervision of our experts on 4-5 different projects. All projects have the potential to implement a change or act as a solution to the plastic problem in the longterm. The program also includes daily lectures on plastic pollution, marine ecology and solution oriented approaches.

During the week you will learn in international and intercultural small groups how to become a hands-on solution creator, how to actively interact with stakeholders, local businesses / authorities, citizens and tourists. Take the chance to share with us one week of studies, brainstorming and exchange of knowledge. Learn to appreciate the beauty of nature on the island of Elba and how to protect it

Phase I: Baseline assessment development

Phase II: Project elaboration and testing

Phase III: Project up-scaling and adaption
