    Schools and citizens from the Black Sea are invited to join the plogging* event. Individuals, in groups, with their friends or family, with their colleagues, everyone is invited to join this initiative.

    What will they have to do? To go for jogging or walking on the beach, on the bank of the river or lake, in their city, neighborhood and picking up litter from those areas.

    Also, they are challenged to make an art litter, with the ones collected, and to post the picture on social media with the #BlackSeaPlogging #MakeBlackSeaBlue #MakeEUBlue

    *Plogging = a recreational activity, originating in Sweden, that combines jogging with picking up litter. It started as an organized activity in Sweden around 2016 and spread to other countries in 2018, following increased concern about plastic pollution. As a workout, it provides variation in body movements by adding bending, squatting, and stretching to the main action of running, hiking, or walking.
