The problem concerning the presence of solid waste in the marine environment has emerged particularly in the last decade. This is not just an aesthetic problem, the numerous research carried out in recent years are increasingly pointing out how this can have negative consequences for marine ecosystems and human health.
We are pleased to announce the first of a new webinar series focussed on marine ecosystem restoration that provides fresh perspectives on how we can benefit from better planning for a healthy marine environment.
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 689518.
