Some details regarding the organisation:
A la une
The city of Dublin (Ireland) has implemented the Biodiversity Week. On May 17, an Ocean Initiative was organised in the areas near Bull Island (a biosphere reserve according to UNESCO) to which a presentation was added along with an observation session of the reserve's biodiversity. Litter collected was then reused as support for works of art and artistic creations during the "Battle of the Bay" event that took place on May 24 and 25. The goal was to raise awareness among young people regarding biodiversity and the problem of aquatic waste by letting their creativity speak. Sculptures made of sand and of the litter collected also symbolised animals present in the Bull Island reserve. Numerous media outlets covered the event, including radio, press, social media, and sports associations.
