On 4th of February 2015 Regional Development Centre Koper (partner of MARLISCO project) and National institute of Chemistry (lead partner of DEFISHGEAR project) organized a national forum on marine litter in Strunjan, Slovenia.
The objectives of the forum were to highlight the issue of marine litter in Slovenia, include various stakeholders and propose solutions to reduce the impact of marine litter on the environment and the society. Stakeholders from different sectors connected with the sea and marine litter attended the event. This included Morigenos, as marine litter is posing a serious threat to all marine mammals, including dolphins. Morigenos president Tilen Genov was invited as one of the panel experts.
The outcome of the forum will be presented to stakeholders on local and national level and will contribute to effective measures for solving this problem.
