A co-creation lab has been organized on line the 24th and 25th of May 2022 from 5:00pm to 7:30pm.
These meetings allow exchanges between activists and scientists from Egypt, France, Lebanon, Algeria and other Mediterranean countries in order to establish a stock of the situation about coastal and navy pollution in the Mediterranean. Present associations and activists will identify what are their needs in order to improve the fight against Mediterranean sea pollution and actively take part in the drawing up of research criteria and/or sharing of data collection tools. During these exchanges, proposals can be done in the frame of simultaneous action participation in the Mediterranean next October.
