Acute plastic pollution is a major threat to our joint seas and coastal areas. In this regard, a Nordic cooperation on prevention, notification and cleanup will be extremely valuable.

The purpose of this webinar is to gather local and governmental authorities and other relevant contributors. Recent incidents will be highlighted, in addition to general and specific experiences and expertise.
