The Blue Panda has reached the south of the Mediterranean: Tunisia, a balmy, sand-fringed Mediterranean coast, scented with jasmine and sea breezes, home to colourful coral reefs and varied sea life. From 27 to 30 October, we will be in Monastir (north-eastern Tunisia) to mobilise people, businesses and local authorities to #StopPlasticPollution in the country.
According to WWF's last report "Stop The Flood of Plastic: How Mediterranean countries can save their sea", Tunisia is the 13th largest plastic goods producer in the Mediterranean region, generating 0.25 mts of waste and mismanaging 36% of it. That’s why the Blue Panda will be in Monastir, also known as a city of the sea, to engage in a series of activities, including seabed clean-ups, talks about plastic pollution with children, young people, fishers, local associations and restaurant owners and a photo exhibition on the impact of plastic pollution. WWF-Tunisia will also engage with ministers and mayors around Tunisia to secure their commitment to reduce, reuse, recycle and achieve zero-plastic leakage into the sea by 2030.
If you happen to be in Monastir, join us onboard or follow us via social media @WWF_Med, #BluePanda #StopPlasticPollution and sign our petition.

Monastir is the 5th stop of the Blue Panda’s six-month journey across the Mediterranean, mobilising people along the coasts of Italy, Greece, France, Turkey, Tunisia and Morocco to #StopPlasticPollution and for #OilFreeGreece! After Monastir, the Blue Panda will move to its final destination Morocco.
