Tunisia: 3-Month Campaign Against Marine Litter in Tunisia, Italy and Lebanon

Tunis/Tunisia — The Coastal management and monitoring network (COMMON) project team at the National Institute of Marine Sciences and Technologies (INSTM), announces the "Beach Clean" campaign, an awareness campaign dedicated to tourism operators in 3 countries: Tunisia, Italy and Lebanon, to fight against marine waste.

This initiative will last for 3 months, from June 1 to August (the summer period), according to a press release from the INSTM in Tunis.

This awareness-raising initiative aims to foster a productive dialogue between tourism operators and the citizens, starting with the sharing of a decalogue of ten good practices to be followed for proper waste management and awareness of the consequences of littering on beaches.

Afterwards, the COMMON project will launch an online survey for citizens and tourists.

Finally, there will be individual interviews with tourist operators to better understand the scourge of marine litter on beaches.
