Ghost net fishing mission at "HMS Perseus"

The legendary HMS PERSEUS submarine, which sunk off Cefalonia on 6 December 1941, will become our field of action in order to “liberate” it from the abandoned nets accumulated in the spot. The mission is organized by the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation, well-known for its maritime history and research activity, in cooperation with Aegean Rebreath, and is expected to deliver a significant amount of ghost nets.

HMS PERSEUS has remained in history for the successful escape of John Capes from the ship, sunk in 52-meter depth, who was the only one saved by a crew of 61 people.

Giornata Mondiale degli Oceani

Una serata per sensibilizzare sul tema dell’inquinamento da plastica negli oceani grazie aGreenpeace Gruppo Locale Padova, che riconosce il nostro impegno su queste tematiche.
Niente cannucce, nessun monouso e solo bicchieri riutilizzabili allo Yucca! - "e soprattutto l’eliminazione delle bottigliette da mezzo litro di acqua in plastica (che è una figata!)".

L’8 giugno in tutto il mondo si celebra la Giornata mondiale degli Oceani 2019 (World Oceans Day), promossa dall’associazione ambientalista The Ocean Project, che dal 2002 è impegnata in attività di tutela, salvaguardia e sensibilizzazione dei nostri mari. In tutto il mondo sono previste iniziative a favore degli Oceani, che puntano in particolare a mettere da parte la plastica che sta uccidendo i nostri mari. “Prevenire l’inquinamento della plastica e incoraggiare soluzioni per un oceano sano” The Ocean Project ha lanciato l’appello: “Smetterai di utilizzare sacchetti, bottiglie di plastica e cannucce per aiutare i nostri oceani?”

Secondo l’UNEP, ben 8 milioni di tonnellate di plastica finiscono ogni anno nei nostri mari, con una prospettiva disarmante: entro il 2050 la plastica supererà la presenza di pesci nei nostri oceani. In questo panorama, tuttavia, le persone stanno dando i primi segnali: il 72% dei cittadini europei ritiene che il proprio impatto sui mari sia una priorità nel proprio stile di vita, a cominciare dai prodotti che compra e dai rispettivi imballaggi. Sono dati riportati dallo studio della community Friends of Glass, diffuso in Italia da Assovetro.

Ci troviamo alle 19 in Piazza Gasparotto per un vero aperitivo plastic free e una chiacchierata su questi temi. Vi aspettiamo!
