The annual Mediterranean beach clean-up, as organised by Seas At Risk member Legambiente, will take place this year between the 29th and 30th of May.

The event has been running since 1995, when the campaign ‘Clean Up the Med’ was born. Last year, over 100,000 volunteers took part in over 1,500 locations.

Over 400 organisations spread across almost every country that borders the Mediterranean Sea have been involved in the past as volunteers commit themselves to removing as much litter as possible from both popular seaside places and sensitive marine reserves.

This year, Legambiente are expecting similar numbers to take up the challenge and are also looking to raise awareness concerning the build of waste in the marine environment.
