This March 21st through 24th Surfrider Foundation Europe will launch the 25th edition of Ocean Initiatives, a program tackling marine litter along beaches, lakes, and rivers through collections, education, and citizen science.
Since 1990, Surfrider Foundation Europe has served as a reference in the fight for the protection of the ocean and its users, with the passion and commitment of its community on the ground. With Surfrider Coastal Defenders, the NGO aims to go even further; offering citizens a platform to respond directly to local issues with local solutions.
The European Parliament has leapt forward to protect people and the environment from plastic pollution, and national governments must now show the same ambition, according to the Rethink Plastic alliance.
An overwhelming majority in the European Parliament voted today to strengthen the European Commission’s plan to cut pollution from single-use plastic items.
