We are on a Mission! Let’s Restore our Oceans

REMEDIES – Co-creating strong uptake of REMEDIES for the future of our oceans through deploying plastic litter valorisation and prevention pathways

We believe that our oceans are the lifeblood of our planet, and we have a responsibility to protect and preserve them for future generations. The health of our oceans is crucial not only for the survival of countless marine species, but also for the well-being of human communities around the world.

Our waters are facing significant challenges from plastic and micro-plastic pollution to overfishing to climate change. These challenges are complex and interconnected, and they require a collaborative and innovative approach to overcome.

That’s where REMEDIES comes in.

REMEDIES is an Horizon Europe innovation Program creating innovative solutions and technologies to monitor, collect, prevent and valorise (micro)plastic from our oceans. Our approach is rooted in science, circularity, and community engagement aiming to protect water ecosystems, reduce pollution and develop a climate-neutral blue economy.

The REMEDIES project is built around the three main pillars: detection and monitoring of plastic litter, its collection and valorisation, and the prevention of the distribution of non degradable plastics and zero waste solutions.

Join REMEDIES movement!

Through collaborative, participatory methodologies and citizen science activities we want to create a more plastic-conscious society. We provide opportunities for stakeholders to act, learn and contribute to a plastic litter free and zero-waste future. Moreover, REMEDIES will support, with mentoring, coaching and financial resources, regions to boost the deployment of plastic litter collection and valorisation schemes as well as to push towards the development of zero-waste supply chains through two open calls for associate regions.
We are inviting stakeholders from across the globe to join us in this mission. By working together, we can create a healthier, more sustainable future for our oceans.
