The “Save the Mediterranean” conference organized between the Balearic Islands and two other regions will address environmental issues such as the problem of plastics in the sea.

The Minister of Environment and Territory of the Government of the Balearic Islands, Miquel Mir, and the General Director of Waste and Environmental Education, Sebastià Sansó, will participate in the next conference “Save the Mediterranean” co-organized by the Council economic and social Councils of the Pyrenees-Mediterranean Euroregion. The conference will take place on September 29 in the city of Montpellier, France.

The conference is structured around three main axes. The first axis will focus on the substitution of plastics by other materials, the second axis will focus on how to recycle and transform waste and the third axis will deal with ecological restoration. There will be contributions from a number of scientific experts and representatives of various organizations.

The meeting stems from the commitment made by the three territories that make up the Euroregion (Catalonia, the Balearic Islands and Occitania) in the joint declaration of June 7, 2019 to fight against plastic pollution in the Mediterranean by cooperating in the exchange of knowledge and research results.
