PROJECT ENDS: OCTOBER 2019

Stop the plastic flow is an initiative supported by Beyond Plastic Med in order to stop the plastic pollution in the Mediterranean. This project aims to raise awareness of both the public and institutions concerning the sources and consequences of plastic pollution to support for the implementation of regulations concerning plastic waste.
As part of the program we have created a map to visualize the problem of pollution in Cyprus. The map aims at encouraging collective action by putting pressure on local authorities and mobilising people responsible for that.
Supporting the map, we have already performed clean-ups within the initiative as well seminars, workshops and field visits.
By the end of the program, we aim using the momentum and the results of the visualisation, along with the increased public awareness achieved through the previous actions, advocate for both the implementation of existing legislation and for a new strategy against plastic pollution.
