COMMON: educating about the environment for an eco-responsible generation
February 9, 2022
The COMMON project team at the Institut National des Sciences et Technologies de la Mer was invited to lead an awareness session for students at the French International School of Tunis E.I.F about plastic pollution.
40 students played the COMMON quiz game and took advantages of conferences presented by the COMMON project team to raise awareness of marine litter issues and their impacts on biodiversity and human health.
The day was carried out in collaboration with TunSea (a Tunisian participatory science platform).
The COMMON project is a European project which aims at building a collaboration network between Italy, Tunisia and Lebanon to support a correct management of marine litter. Funded under the ENI CBC Med Programme, it applies the Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) principles to the challenge of marine litter, improving knowledge of the phenomenon, enhancing the environmental performance of 5 pilot coastal areas in Italy, Tunisia and Lebanon, and engaging local stakeholders in marine litter management.
