A road map in the Algarve's leeward that will showcase innovative companies associated with the blue economy and a garbage collection action in Faro will mark the European Maritime Day next Thursday, 30.
The organization of the two regional events dedicated to the theme of the sea, responding to the invitation of the European Commission, belongs to the Algarve Regional Coordination and Development Commission (CCDR) and the European networks Europe Direct and Enterprise Europe Network.
With the motto «A Sea to share», two events will take place simultaneously, with two distinct purposes: a route in the Algarve leeward that will bring to light innovative companies associated with the blue economy and an action to collect marine litter, to alert consciences to the problem of plastics and pollution in oceans and beaches.
Francisco Serra, president of CCDR / Algarve, participates in the visit to four companies based in Castro Marim, Tavira and Olhão, to listen to entrepreneurs, to know the difficulties faced in the implementation of their projects and the challenges posed in the development and internationalization of the business.
The initiative "A sea to share without trash to get in the way" has the support of the Algarve Regional Hydrographic Administration of the Portuguese Environment Agency (ARH-APA) and the Environmental Volunteer for Water project and aims to involve public officials in the region and citizens in general in a volunteer action that will clean the beach area between the Island of Faro and Quinta do Lago, appealing to the responsibility each one in the change to promote.
Enrollment in this cleaning action can be done here.
