MAELSTROM - Vila do Conde Cleanup

The World Cleanup Day will be celebrated on the 16 September 2023. It is an international initiative that brings together volunteers, governments and organisations from more than 190 countries to tackle the global problem of marine litter, contributing to a more sustainable world. This is also the mission of the EU-funded project MAELSTROM which promotes a beach cleanup in the city of Vila do Conde, where it plans to install innovative technology for the recovery of marine litter in the coming months. 

MAELSTROM (Smart technology for MARinE Litter SusTainable RemOval and Management) project. Funded by the EU, under the H2020 Program, MAELSTROM brings together a consortium of 14 international partners with the mission to investigate and implement innovative technologies for the identification, collection, recycling and recovery of marine litter. At the same time, the project proposes the creation of several moments and activities to raise awareness on this topic, with the direct involvement of citizens.
