17 January 2017

We are very proud to announce that Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Mr Karmenu Vella, agreed to become an official Healthy Seas ambassador. He confirmed this by recording a video statement, underlining his active support for the work we do.

The European Commission considers marine litter a serious problem and therefore sees action leading towards a circular economy as the way forward.

That is why Commissioner Vella is “happy to support initiatives like Healthy Seas”. Mr Vella: “Healthy Seas is already leading the way to a more circular economy. It is a valuable step in the right direction: to a healthier marine environment and a more intelligent economy. Congratulations and keep up the good work!”
