Small particles, big concerns

 “Small particles, big concerns Marine microplastics revisited” is the title of the hybrid event that will be held next 6 december at the Europea Parliament. 

Hosted by MEP Catherine Chabaud, Co-Chair of the ‘Ocean Governance’ Working Group of the European Parliament Intergroup on ‘Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development’, the aim of the event is to foster a comprehensive understanding of the challenges posed by microplastics in our marine ecosystems and to catalyse collective action.  

The event, co-organized by the pan- Europea platform JPI Oceans, seeks to facilitate a robust discussion on the latest research findings related to the sources, distribution, and impacts of microplastics. By bringing together policymakers, industry stakeholders, and civil society representatives, the event aims to address and inform current and future policy measures and strategies.  

The goal is to refine and enhance the EU's existing frameworks, such as the Plastics Strategy and the Action Plan for marine ecosystems, ensuring a sustainable and resilient future for our oceans.
