Clean Coasts was delighted to be hold Ocean Talks with our Ocean Hero Awards on 23rd November 2018 in Cork

The presence of marine litter in our oceans is a global concern that requires action.  Adequate measures are needed to address the impacts of litter in the marine environment both at sea and on land whereby public awareness and community action plays a vital role. The Clean Coasts Ocean Talks and Ocean Hero Awards brings together key stakeholders in the area of marine litter such as coastal communities, NGOs, tourism bodies, science community, business and fishing industry.
