Converting beach wrack into a resource and asset – towards sustainable solutions for beach wrack use

Final Conference of the EU-Interreg BSR Project 'CONTRA - Conversion of a Nuisance to a Resource and Asset'

Ecologists, entrepreneurs, beach managers, policy makers and other partners from Germany, Poland, Sweden, Estonia, Russia and Denmark will showcase beach wrack management, reuse and recycling options recently implemented in the Baltic Sea Region and give guidance and recommendations towards the implementation of sustainable solutions.

Besides environmental aspects of beach wrack, its handling and potential to e.g. mitigate climate change or improve coastal protection, CONTRA informs about technical and business-oriented solutions.

With an interactive panel discussion, breakout sessions with researchers and implementers, and a matchmaking session, the conference will also be a vivid platform for networking and exchange on challenges, innovative ideas and cooperation in the field of blue-bioeconomy.
