Thus, this Saturday, 500 volunteers, including about a hundred divers, used collective energy to extract from the old port the waste accumulated on the bottom of the Old Port of Marseille. Domestic objects, unusual objects, the world of plastic, voluntary or blown away discharges, the layers are multiple and bottomless!
The operation is above all educational and makes possible, beyond the eco-citizen operation, to raise awareness and mobilize as many people as possible around the issue of pollution by waste and the preservation of our heritage.
Septentrion Environnement had been delegated the organization and coordination of all the diving clubs involved in the operation. What a pleasure to see the strong mobilization of the living forces gathered that day!
Thanks to the Fédération des Sociétés Nautiques des Bouches du Rhône for the initiative!
Congratulations to all the participants present on shore at the nautical societies and the village of associations!
