6 Oct 2017 - 11:00
Our Ocean Conference 2017
6th October 2017 from 11am till noon at the Cavalieri Art Hotel, Spinola Bay St. Julians.
Seven national NGOs from key EU member states primarily from the Mediterranean regions work together in order to protect the citizens and the environment from shipping emissions.
Pollution from ships is a significant threat to human health, the environment and global climate. Ships are a major source of particulate matter, nitrogen and sulphur oxide emissions – especially in port cities and coastal areas. While emissions from land-based sources have been successfully targeted by European legislation during the past years, shipping is still out of the focus of ambitious emission reduction targets.
