The activities are carried out under the project “Porto Santo Sem Lixo Marinho”(Porto Santo Without Marine Waste) (Environment Program, EEA Grants), in synergy with the Action Plan “Da Escola para o Mundo – Agir, Incluir, Transformar” (From School to the World – Act, Include, Transform) (Active Citizens Fund, EEA Grants). It took place in Calhau da Serra de Dentro e da Serra de Fora and Fontinha beach. The students collected 130kg of garbage, of which 75kg was plastic.
It is essential to continue investing in this type of initiative to promote the protection of the oceans and biodiversity. If it is crucial to fight marine litter, it is also essential to clean beaches, coastal areas, streams, and places whose waters are threatened by pollution.
