‘I cleaned, it’s your turn’: EU supports Black Sea beach cleaning in Ukraine

Almost 3,000 people in 88 teams collected 38 tons of waste, as part of the International Clean Beach Day campaign carried out in Ukraine, with the support of the EU-funded EMBLAS project.

More than half the participants in the two-week campaign were from schools.

A total of 2,787 people collected 38 tons of waste during the campaign – the same amount as was collected by 7,157 volunteers in 2019.

The EU4EMBLAS project seeks to improve the protection of the Black Sea through technical support for environmental monitoring in Georgia and Ukraine, capacity building, assessment of environmental status, and public awareness raising on the Black Sea environmental issues.
