Venice Lagoon Plastic Free is a non-profit organization based in Venice, functioning as a platform for action, connecting other organizations locally and internationally along with single individuals to:
• Design, develop, implement and promote local, national and international projects/networks to catalyse resources and expertise for plastic pollution prevention and remediation measures, within a circular economy approach.
• Operate decentralised large scale clean-ups in the city of Venice, its lagoon, including nearby mainland towns and cities.
• Promote public debates and awareness initiatives with different stakeholders to raise awareness of the danger of plastic pollution, encouraging the uptake of good practices along with individual and collective actions.
• Carry out independent environmental monitoring initiatives in the waters of Venice, in cooperation with research/educational institutes and centres.

Venice Lagoon Plastic Free (VLPF) is developing the SeaClear2.0 mobile application and portal, which will allow the recording of location, volume, weight, and type of marine litter collected. Using gamification and incentivization, the app will be a key tool for educating and engaging citizens to take action against marine litter. VLPF will also organise a pilot test of the SeaClear2.0 system in Venice and a workshop on monitoring, prevention, and removal of marine pollution during the Boat Show of Venice.
