Marine Litter Workshop 5-6 June 2018

We have two of our co-founders participating in the Arctic Marine Litter workshop in Akureyri, Iceland.

The event is hosted by PAME (Protection of the Arctic Marine Environment Working Group) together with the Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources. We are very happy for the opportunity to be part of this workshop that will be held from 5-6 June.

The is to facilitate inputs to the development of PAME’s Desktop Study on Marine Litter including Microplastics in the Arctic, taking into account new developments and information as relevant. The desktop study will be released at the Arctic Council Ministerial meeting in May, 2019.

PAME operates largely within these themes:
• Arctic Shipping
• Marine Protected Areas
• Resource Exploration and Development
• Ecosystem Approach to Management
• Arctic Marine Strategic Plan 2015-2025
• Arctic Marine Pollution
