The Mirpuri Foundation participated in the 7 Seas Summit – an event taking place in Lisbon and dedicated to blue economy. Its key note speech presented the “Turn the Tide on Plastic” campaign and efforts to tackle ocean plastic pollution, raising awareness and delivering sea-focused solutions.

The Summit was dedicated to the Blue Economy Topic, adressing subjects such as Plastic in the Oceans, Shipping, Wildlife Conservation and Impact Entrepreneurship.

Portugal and its capital Lisbon –  the European capital of sustainability 2020- have positioned themselves as pioneers within the technological development of maritime economy – receiving various European funds to implement  the directives in the fight against pollution, maritime desertification and the excessive amount of plastic that our oceans harbours.
