We owe saving a good environment for future generations, on which their lives depend! And for that, we all have a duty to work for a better environment and achieve a sustainable development, so we can have a better tomorrow!
On the path of attaining these goals, Makhzoumi Foundation participated in the annual general meeting of Mediterranean Information Office for Environment, Culture, and Sustainable Development MIO-ECSDE, and the regional training on Marine Litter Monitoring and Management in the Mediterranean, and the closing event of the ACT4Litter project, that was held in Athens, Greece, between the 23rd and the 25th of October.
The meeting addressed the need to protect the natural environment and cultural heritage and promote sustainable development in the peaceful Mediterranean, by bringing together the efforts of environmental and developmental NGOs.
In the same context, the ACT4Litter project aimed to showcase the collective response of the Mediterranean to curb the problem of marine litter. It also brought forward recent scientific advances with regards to marine litter and its impacts in the region, along with initiatives that address the whole management cycle of marine litter, from prevention, monitoring and surveillance to mitigation measures, carried out at European, Mediterranean, national and local level.
