This event is online


CONTRA - Conversion of a Nuisance to a Resource and Asset - cordially invites you to its final online conference on the 1-2 June 2021.

What to do with beach wrack (marine organic material that is washed ashore) is a question that ecologists, entrepreneurs, beach managers, policy makers and scientists are dealing with.  The CONTRA partners as well as external presenters from Germany, Poland, Sweden, Estonia, Russia and Denmark will showcase beach wrack management, reuse and recycling options recently implemented in the Baltic Sea Region and give guidance and recommendations towards the implementation of sustainable solutions. Both environmental aspects of beach wrack as well as its handling and potential as a blue resource will be discussed.

With presentations on the key project results, breakout sessions with researchers and implementers, and an interactive matchmaking session, the conference will also be a vivid platform for networking and exchange on challenges, innovative ideas and future cooperation in the field of blue bioeconomy.

The agenda and registration will be announced soon at
