On Friday, April 13, Nicoletta Nesto and Vanessa Moschino of the GHOST team held the last seminars of a cycle organized in the framework of the project called “ IL MARE ADDOSSO”. The seminars were held at the institute of Marine Sciences (ISMAR) in Venice and were focused on the issue of ghost nets, their ecological impacts and the development of management strategies aimed at the recycling of their plastic components.
This stimulating project, coordinated by Unioncoop Formazione and Impresa S.c.a.r.l. and funded by the Veneto Region, was carried out with the cooperation of various partners including ISMAR, fishing-net manufactures, tailoring and e-marketing companies. The main task of this initiative is to provide a group of unemployed young people with the needed technical-managerial skills to launch a start-up enterprise for the fishing net’s creative recycling, in particular through the development of tailoring manufacturing and decorative items.
