The Parliament of the Fish

It is commonly known that marine litter is a major global problem. Taking action directly in and on the oceans and reducing litter input coming from the land is therefore urgently necessary. This will happen not only through innovative ideas, but an enhanced awareness towards the topic within societies is important, since the global pollution of water bodies with litter is a man-made problem. The project “The Parliament Of The Fish” is an approach of the Kurtheater Bitterfeld e.V. dessau-roßlau, EUCC-D and associated partners to increase the awareness and also an attempt to motivate people to become active against the proceeding water pollution in their region.

Duration: January 2016 to September 2018

Wadden Sea Region Planning Portal

Die Wattenmeerregion ist nicht nur UNESCO Weltnaturerbe mit einer großen Vielfalt an Tier- und Pflanzenarten. Der trilateral von Dänemark, Deutschland und den Niederlanden genutzte Raum ist auch einem hohen Nutzungsdruck durch menschliche Aktivitäten wie Häfen, Schifffahrt und Energiegewinnung ausgesetzt. Um verschiedenen Interessengruppen grenzüberschreitende Daten über wirtschaftliche Nutzungen, Raumplanung und Naturschutzregelungen zur Verfügung zu stellen hat das Wadden Sea Forum e.V. gemeinsam mit EUCC-D ein innovatives Werkzeug entwickelt: das „Wadden Sea Region Planning Portal“.
