Beyond River and Sea

The call submitted by LIPOR and IPDJ, under the  Environment, Climate Change and Low Carbon Economy Program, by  European Economic Area (EEA) Financial Mechanism 2014-2021 - Small Grants Scheme #1 – Projects to prevent and raise awareness to reduce marine litter, was one of the 6 winners, among the 24 calls submitted.

The project "HÁ RIO E MAR, HÁ LIXO PARA TRANSFORMAR” (Beyond River and Sea, Waste to Transform Can Be)  intends to develop a set of initiatives and tools that intensively and continuously promote the Ocean Literacy and the Sea Protection and Preservation, integrated into education systems, information to citizens, training of technicians at administrative and business level, in view of adopting the best environmental management practices in this matter.

Therefore, it is assumed that the strengthening of education and the awareness of populations are the determining factors for success in pursuing a New Course.

This project, which started in May 2020 and will run until March 2022, is based on 4 fundamental strategic axes:

  • Axis 1 - Awareness: Changing attitudes and behaviors, involving different actors, in raising awareness to fight against marine litter.
  • Axis 2 - Literacy: Empowering the various actors of the process to the daily adoption of best environmental management practices in this field.
  • Axis 3 - Marketing and Disclosure: Sensitize the community to protect, prevent and combat marine environment pollution, such as provide tools that allow a growing intervention in the field and a constant dissemination of the seized information.
  • Axis 4 - Evaluation and Impact: Assess the impact of activities and initiatives of the strategy to combat marine litter.

Stay tuned to this project and join this common challenge.
