The battle against plastic pollution acquires a European dimension through the events entitled “The Guardians of the Sea”.
On September 16, 2023, citizens in Taranto and Zakynthos join the pan-European battle against marine pollution to protect the Environment.
Bari, 31 August 2023 – “Achieving the growing need for sustainability and protection of the marine environment, through cooperation based on shared good intentions, starts with the citizen.” This is one of the principles that inspired and motivated the Interreg V-A Greece-Italy Program 2014/2020, the Regional strategic organization for the ecological sustainable development of the Puglia Region (ASSET Puglia) and the Region of the Ionian Islands – Funding Agency, Lead Partner and Partner of the Interreg AETHER project respectively (acronym in English for “Alliance for the Effective Transnational Handling of Environmental Resources”) – to organize, on September 16, 2023, a mass awareness-raising action aimed at the active participation of European citizens in environmental protection, making them the real “Guardians of the Sea”.

This series of events is entitled “Sentinels of the Sea” and represents the wave of change that, starting from the shores of Apulia (Taranta) and reaching the shores of Zakynthos, will create a moral movement which will be able to cross national borders and unite citizens, associations, economic and public bodies under the banner of cooperation.
