On July 5th in Sète (France), members of the European projects INDICIT and MEDSEALITTER participated to a training session for 15 members of the staff of the CPIE (Permanent Center for the Initiation to the Environment), in charge of the communication and environmental mediation with the general public and school groups.

Claude Miaud, INDICIT coordinator, presented the program and the impact of marine pollution by plastic litter, and Delphine Gambaiani (doctoral student as part of the MEDSEALITTER program) presented MEDSEALITTER, and talked in more details about the impact of microplastics on marine biodiversity.

The staff was very interested in this scientific intervention, which will help them to raise awareness about the impact of plastic and microplastics on marine fauna and flora, and the current research and projects working on these issues.
