WP5: Zero Pollution Accelerator

WP5 will bring together results generated within WP2, WP3 and WP4 in deliverables designed to create long-lasting impact by delivering and streamlining the project’s new knowledge on pollution to the project’s target groups, such as through a Zero Pollution Parliament.



• To pave the way for multi-stakeholder, multi-sectoral and multi-level actions that can deliver a successful blue green transition towards clean European Seas by 2030, through a truly ambitious, transformational and pragmatic framework and roadmap;
• To foster an effective, swift and wide uptake and replication of novel solutions and best practices by user communities, via fit-for-purpose and user-friendly guidelines that will enable the operationalization of the framework and roadmap towards clean European Seas by 2030;

• To strengthen the science-policy-society interface and ensure a seamless environmental management continuum, where robust knowledge on pollution related issues can be effectively streamlined into a refined policy vision that can deliver an informed societal response that deploys targeted and effective pollution prevention and mitigation approaches.
