About this event 

Industrial activities over Europe are responsible for water pollution on a massive scale. This pollution not only negatively affects the marine environment, impacts frequented bathing and recreational sites but also severely impacts the health of blue communities living nearby and that of water sports enthusiasts, with pollution causing cancer, asthma and other diseases.
