CONTRA project final online conference
The EU-Interreg Baltic Sea Region Project CONTRA - Conversion of a Nuisance to a Resource and Asset - will organise its final online conference on 1-2 June 2021.
Ecologists, entrepreneurs, beach managers, policy makers and other partners from Germany, Poland, Sweden, Estonia, Russia and Denmark will showcase beach wrack management, reuse and recycling options recently implemented in the Baltic Sea Region and give guidance and recommendations towards the implementation of sustainable solutions. Besides environmental aspects of beach wrack, its handling and potential to e.g. mitigate climate change or improve coastal protection, CONTRA informs about technical and business-oriented solutions.
With an interactive panel discussion, breakout sessions with researchers and implementers, and an interactive matchmaking session, the conference will also be a vivid platform for networking and exchange on challenges, innovative ideas and future cooperation in the field of blue bioeconomy.
