MIO-ECSDE and MEdIES, in collaboration with HELMEPA, Geitonas School and the Hellenic Recovery Recycling Corporation joined the International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) Day 2014. The ICC is the largest annual global volunteer effort to remove and record litter on the coastal and marine environment, bringing hundreds of thousands of people from around 100 countries.

The cleanup took place on Saturday 20/09/2014 on a heavily littered beach near the SEF Stadium in Athens, with the participation of a group of students and their teachers, as well as the local beach goers, around 100 people in total.

The volunteers collected 84 bags of recyclable waste, mostly items such as plastic bottles, plastic bags and plastic packaging; glass bottles; straws, beverage cans; caps/lids, etc. plus a few bags of non-recyclable waste. Detailed data from the ICC cleanups carried out throughout Greece will be published by HELMEPA in the next months.

The cleanup volunteers had the opportunity to visit the innovative marine litter exhibition, that was displayed on the beach, aiming to raise awareness on the root causes, the impacts and the solutions of the marine litter issue.

The exhibition has been developed by MIO-ECSDE / MEdiES within the FP7 project entitled: MARLISCO (MARine LItter in European Seas – Social AwarenesS and CO Responsibility www.marlisco.eu), translated in 14 languages and launched in 12 European countries. In Greece the MARLISCO exhibition has been produced with the support of the Coca-Cola System in Greece (Coca-Cola Hellas & Coca-Cola Tria Epsilon).

The cleanup event was also supported by the DeFishGear project , a science-policy initiative  on marine litter in the Adriatic Region (www.defishgear.net).
