COUSTEAU x EMBLAS Project Infographics: Chemical pollution of the Black Sea

COUSTEAU and “EMBLAS Plus” project teamed up to create an exhibition consisting of 5 infographics in the form of panels on the state of the Black Sea.

The main objective of this project is to help improve the protection of the Black Sea by collecting data. From there the aim is to establish a general consensus on the state of the Black Sea and carry out local actions which raise the awareness of the public and decision makers.

The EMBLAS Plus project is funded by the European Union and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).

The infographics are a way to showcase the huge amount of research data while making it digestible to the general public.

Chemical pollution of the Black Sea

Many different toxic substances can be found in the Black Sea. These chemicals represent a threat to the Black Sea’s biodiversity and the humans who depend on it. This infographic explains the sources and effects of this challenging problem.

To go along with this series of infographics on the  state of the Black Sea, we are sharing the Cousteau film series on the Danube. The Danube is Europe’s second longest river and after numerous alliances reaches the Black Sea 2880 km away from its source in the Black Forest.

This week’s film is Danube: Charlemagne’s Dream

You can follow Cousteau on our social networks to keep up to date with all the latest Cousteau news, films and programs.
