LIVES

The project LIVES focuses on reducing plastic waste in the river Meuse. It aims to reduce plastic waste by the end of the project period. LIVES supports environmentally friendly cross-border cooperation by bringing together ten project partners throughout the Euregion Meuse-Rhine. The implementation of the project will revolve around an extensive analysis of the current litter situation in the river, measures against waste production, including awareness-raising campaigns and the installation of five different types of plastic-traps, as well as institutional arrangements to ensure the sustainability of the project. While several initiatives already exist at local level, the LIVES project is looking at a more coherent cross-border approach, taking into consideration the wider impact that litter has on the river Meuse.
