The BlueMed Pilot healthy plastics-free Mediterranean Sea towards the 2030 targets: the strategy developed by the plastic producing and transforming operators of the area October 26, 2021, Ravezzi 1 Room - South Hall Rimini Expo Centre, Italy (and online)

EU Missions are undertaking actions to face some of the greatest global challenges by setting 2030 targets that includes cleaning marine waters, restoring degraded ecosystems and habitats, decarbonising the blue economy.

In the frame of the BlueMed Pilot Action on a Healthy Plastic-free Mediterranean Sea, the wide community of the plastic producing and transforming operators of the area agreed on the urgency to reduce the risk for the environment and human health posed by plastic pollution by developing and implementing a shared vision for plastic in the circular economy.

This event, jointly organised by the Euro-Mediterranean Group of 16 Senior Officials of BlueMed Initiative, the European Commission, Federchimica-PlasticsEurope Italia and the National Research Council of Italy, looks at the solutions adopted for a smarter local use, management and recycling of plastics with a high impact in terms of replication trough the basin and among international governance structures.

Object of discussion includes key challenges ensuring a healthy and productive Sea together with the identification of pathways that need to be implemented to obtain measurable results and meet the 2030 targets for a systemic change.
