MONTANI, VERITAS, HIREF, and JONIX, as well as with several environmental associations and national institutions, have organized the Plastic Free Event placed in Venice.

The initiative took place on the occasion of the World environmental and Oceans Day, 7-8 June 2019.

The theme for 2019 is focused on "Macro and micro impacts of plastic wastes and possible solutions”. In this context, the workshop of Enabling Project was to give a contribution by showing the first results with particular attention to the innovative best practices and potential growing of European cluster among partners and stakeholders of the project, with the aim to increase the awareness of a more conscious "Enabling Community".

The initiative ended with a clean-up activity, which aims at raising public awareness on the impact of abandoned plastic waste, taken place on 8 June 2019. A particular acknowledgment is going to Dr. Poletto from Unesco-Venice for having contributed to the realization of the event.
