It has been more than a month that the BLUEISLANDS project officially closed. Nonetheless, the project continues to spread its outputs with the publication of a video. It summarizes the main findings and presents some key results. The project successfully highlighted that:

  • data collection is the pillar of punctual policy making, especially when it comes to waste prevention;
  • end-user engagement is the key and decentralized authorities have a key role in community engagement;
  • tourists produce on average more waste than local beachgoers; this is why targeted awareness campaigns can make them feel an integral part of local communities;
  • marine litter is mostly the result of consumption and production models and waste management systems;
  • Smaller local waste treatment plants (e.g. composters, reverse vending machines) can increase community engagement and improve resiliency of waste management systems .
