The 26th Conservation Brigade at Pomorie Lake was held from September 1 to 6, 2021 and was organized by the Green Balkans Association. Every year at this time dozens of volunteers and environmentalists of all ages, professions, countries and settlements gather on the shores of the salt lagoon near Pomorie.
As part of the program, volunteers had the opportunity to learn more about the project “Environmental Awareness and Behavior to Stop Pollution in Significant Wetlands of the Black Sea Basin”, BSB142, funded by the Operational Program for Cross-Border Cooperation under the European Neighborhood Instrument “Black Sea Basin 2014-2020“ implemented by Green Balkans and united partners from 5 countries (Turkey, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Georgia and Greece).
During the presentation the main activities and achieved results were presented, and the emphasis was to pay special attention to the long-standing problem of pollution not only of Pomorie Lake, but also target wetlands and the Black Sea basin. The participants in the brigade received information materials – a leaflet, a brochure and a report “Pollution of Pomorie Lake with waste. Current status and distribution” issued within the project
Project BSB142 BioLearn is funded by the Joint Operational Program “Black Sea Basin 2014-2020” co-financed by the EU through the European Neighborhood Instrument and the participating countries: Armenia, Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Moldova, Romania, Turkey and Ukraine.
