How to limit, more effectively and without delay, the damage caused by marine litter in our oceans and in our lives? Marine litter is one of the consequences of the current paradigm of our inability to cope with the volume of waste we produce. They are a real challenge for our societies, as well as for our economic and political systems. Anxious to answer this question, the forum in Rabat, next May 10th, aims to advance the prevention of marine litter, particularly regarding single-use plastic bags and beverage packaging.

This forum aims to reach different audiences such as public administration and civil society organizations concerned with waste management, as well as other sectors that offer alternatives to plastic bags, beverage producers, waste management companies and collection cooperatives, wholesalers or recyclers. The main objectives are to reflect upon:

  • Priorities for the promotion of alternatives to single-use plastic bags
  • The growing responsibility of producers in the beverage packaging sector, as well as
  • To benefit from other initiative’s feedback.
