The fisheries, maritime and environmental sectors are closely interlinked since competitiveness depends on the conservation of natural resources. Great benefits can be obtained by combining Europe’s ambitions for achieving “blue growth” in the maritime economy and “green growth” that protects the environment. It would boost development in those sectors and foster circular economy that prevents the loss of valuable materials. This workshop will highlight the importance of solutions that are integrated into scalable business models involving cross-sectoral collaboration in order to prevent and minimise marine litter in Europe.
