Small particles, big concerns: marine microplastics revisited


Hosted by MEP Catherine Charbaud

The aim of the event is to foster a comprehensive understanding of the challenges posed by microplastics in our marine ecosystems and to catalyse collective action. The event seeks to facilitate a robust discussion on the latest research findings related to the sources, distribution, and impacts of microplastics. By bringing together policymakers, industry stakeholders, and civil society representatives, the event aims to address and inform current and future policy measures and strategies. Drawing on collective insights, the goal is to refine and enhance the EU's existing frameworks, such as the Plastics Strategy and the Action Plan for marine ecosystems, ensuring a sustainable and resilient future for our oceans.
