PUBLICATION

“Clean Mediterranean Sea! – CMS!“ is an “academic start-up“ project at the Vienna Forum for Democracy and Human Rights. Its planning and preparation was done under the guidance of Hannes Tretter and it was coordinated by Philip Wilfing with the help of volunteer law students from the University of Vienna, starting in autumn of 2018 and finishing in late 2019. In early 2020, the Hermann and Marianne Straniak Foundation from Sarnen (Switzerland), whose roots also extend to Austria, decided it would give financial support to the project for 2020 to 2022, making it possible to continue the matter at a professional level.

Professor of Human Rights

We cannot direct the wind. But we can adjust the sails.” - Aristoteles

As professor for human rights and as a sailor I have learned that plastic waste in the Mediterranean is a ticking bomb for nature, environment and climate because of the locked offing between the Bosporus and the Pillars of Heracles.
