The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands and Ports IB join forces to raise awareness of waste left in natural environment on the occasion of Balearic Islands Day
With the slogan “In the sea, leave no trace behind you”, both port entities are organising activities throughout the islands in conjunction with the LIBERA project.
On the occasion of the Balearic Islands Day and with the slogan “In the sea leave no trace behind you”, Ports de les Illes Balears and the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands have joined forces this year to raise awareness among the citizens of all the islands of the serious environmental problem of waste left in the natural environment and its impact on flora and fauna.
For this reason, between 26 February and 1 March, family workshops with talks and waste characterisation campaigns will be offered by the LIBERA project in different ports of the Balearic Islands. Created in 2017 by the NGO SEO/BirdLife in alliance with Ecoembes, this project is intended to raise awareness and mobilise citizens to keep the natural environment free of waste.
The aim is to involve all citizens and explain the role that everyone has to play in preventing pollution and protecting the natural environments of the Balearic Islands. The following events have been scheduled:
- On Saturday, 26 February, there will be two events: one at the maritime station of the port of Sant Antoni de Portmany and the other at the port of La Savina
- Sunday, 27 February, in the old port of Ciutadella in front of the Ports de les Illes Balears offices
- Monday 28, at the institutional headquarters of the APB in the port of Palma
- Tuesday, 1 March, in Portocristo
Two family sessions will be held in each port at 11:30 am and 12:30 pm. Those interested in participating can register using this form.
