REMEDIES: Co-Creating a Plastic Litter Free Future
On January 10 and 11, 23 partners from 12 different countries, 60 representatives and more than 20 local stakeholders gathered to present the project REMEDIES and plan actions to valorize and prevent plastic waste. The Institute of Chemistry, as coordinator of the consortium, led the content and facilitated the first meeting of this ambitious innovation project, with the aim of presenting the partners and the topic from a local, European and global perspective.
REMEDIES is a Mission Horizon programme co-funded by the European Commission that aims to jointly develop solutions for the future of our oceans by exploring ways to valorize and prevent plastic waste. The overall goal of the REMEDIES programme is to create a trend toward plastic avoidance using traditional and modern channels. Using citizen science to encourage co-creation of participatory processes, REMEDIES aims to create a more plastic-conscious society. Monitor and collect plastic waste and prevent it from happening in the first place.
