Clean Coasts Warriors are individuals who are using their power to support us and the message of ocean health. They are some of the amazing people fighting the good fight and battling marine litter through their work/community at the front line.
Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government
As part of its commitments under the EU’s Marine Strategy Framework Directive and OSPAR’s Marine Litter Action Plan, the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government is proud to support An Taisce’s ‘Clean Coasts Programme’, in its enthusiastic engagement with marine communities in relation to marine litter and in heightening public awareness and influencing positive behaviour among civil society. The Department would also like to acknowledge the tremendous work done by hundreds of local clean coast groups around the coast in protecting the marine environment, for the generations to come.
Fáilte Ireland, the National Tourism Development Authority is a proud sponsor of the Clean Coasts programme for the past 9 years.
