  • Marine Litter: Solutions for Monitoring, Mitigation and Prevention
    This workshop, third after Brest 2018 and Brest 2019, is a participatory workshop aiming at the broadening of our community and the identification of priority actions that we want to implement afterwards. The objective is to assess options for the prevention of marine litter entering the ocean and the reduction of marine debris — in particular plastics — in the ocean. We will identify priorities for a cleaner ocean and develop action plans for these priorities which will be integrated into the refined  road map developed during the first two workshops.
