Healthy Seas presented its journey from waste to wear at the Green Bubbles Open Workshop in Portofino (26-27 September) while raising awareness about marine litter and showing that in circular economy waste is a resource. The workshop hosted 50+ participants from academia, diving industry, authorities, press and NGOs.

The event offered a great opportunity to explore cooperation with divers, representatives of marine protected areas and other stakeholders in order to further extend our activities in Italy for ghost nets free seas!

Furthermore we are also exploring cooperation with fishermen in Portofino area to establish waste fishing net reception facilities in some selected harbours. We encourage the fishermen to collect their waste nets for us and offer multiple benefits for those who decide to do so.
