The workshop will illustrate the experience of the successful implementation of monitoring, sustainable technologies for the removal and recycling of marine litter from coastal environments, describing the activites done, highlighting the issues faced so far and the strategies put in place to overcome them. Innovative approaches to involve stakeholders and citizens in the fight to marine litter in terms of C&D activities, networking and policy briefs will be also presented. 
The MAELSTROM results represent a pilot in the implementation of the EU Mission "Restore Our Ocean and Waters by 2030", so the main lessons learnt will be shared and discussed during the workshop.
