SCP/RAC AND EXPÉDITIONS MED SIGN A PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT TO FIGHT AGAINST PLASTIC POLLUTION IN THE MEDITERRANEAN

A new promising partnership was signed on May 20, 2021 between Expeditions MED association and the Regional Activity Center for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP/RAC) to join forces to address the environmental, social and economic challenges related to plastic pollution in the Mediterranean.

Through this partnership, the two organizations will increase the impact of their respective actions to fight against marine litter and promote local, eco-innovative solutions.

Expedition MED develops travelling exhibitions as part of its pilot program "Plastic Free Mediterranean Sea - Exhibitions for Education", with three partner countries: Morocco, Algeria and Italy. These touring activities track and record the sources, origins and impacts of plastic waste and present sustainable solutions adapted to partner countries.

This collaboration focuses, for these exhibitions, on the creation of content promoting eco-innovative solutions in the fight against pollution by plastic waste for each country. The main objective is to raise public awareness in the Mediterranean in order to better know and tackle the challenges of plastic pollution.

SCP/RAC, through its medium-term strategy on plastics, intends to reduce and prevent plastic pollution, decreasing the toxicity and increasing the sustainability of plastics, strengthening the use of life cycle thinking and supporting eco-innovation.
