EXIT Foundation participates in the new ecological project REMEDIES, within the European Union programme “EU Mission: Restore our Ocean and Waters”, dedicated to individuals, organisations, collectives and everyone who wants to contribute to the ecosystem without plastic waste.

The project was launched at the beginning of the year by the National Institute of Chemistry from Slovenia, in cooperation with 22 partners from 12 different countries, 60 representatives and more than 20 local stakeholders, and aims to attract public interest in the creation and use of means to heal the oceans, seas and water, through the monitoring and collection of plastic waste, and, above all, through the prevention of new pollution.

The main goal of the REMEDIES Project is to start the trend of preventing the creation of plastic waste by engaging the general public, implementing joint actions, and building a more environmentally conscious society on the local, European, and global levels. Concrete steps towards that goal will be monitoring macro and microplastic waste in eight Mediterranean areas, collection and valorisation of more than 422 tons of plastic waste, preventing further deposition of more than 61 tons of plastic, reaching over 250,000 people and engaging more than two thousand citizens, as well as increasing zero-waste initiatives in over fifty European cities. REMEDIES innovations will be presented in different countries and occasions, with the aim of providing examples of good practice and their further application, and one of those occasions will take place at one of the EXIT festivals at the Adriatic Sea in 2025.

This is another in a series of initiatives that EXIT Foundation joins in order to continue developing the Green EXIT platform, which has organised numerous environmental actions during the past years. In October last year, at the ADE Green Conference for sustainability, innovations and social changes in the music industry, within the Amsterdam Dance Event, EXIT festival joined the Green Deal Circular Festivals association, together with 42 other European festivals, with the aim of making these events environmentally sustainable. The members of this Association focus on the following areas: energy, food and drink, travel and transport, materials and water.

The new project in which EXIT Foundation participates, advocates similar values – REMEDIES is not only about scientists or entrepreneurs, but about everyone who wants to contribute to a plastic-free future by putting their own ideas into action and living a zero-waste lifestyle. Every individual has the power to make a difference and impact on the local and global community, prevent the creation of plastic waste and save the planet and its water bodies, and every, even a small contribution, is important!
