The Kick-Off Event took place on Saturday, 11 October 2014, in Famagusta. The event started early in the morning with beach cleanups from volunteers and seabed cleanups by members of the Scuba Divers Association. The collected litter was displayed alongside the MARLISCO exhibition on marine litter in the gardens of MASDER for the kick-off presentation in the afternoon. Various key stakeholders from both communities attended the event, became informed about the project and visited the interactive exhibition, which will remain in MASDER's gardens until Monday 20th October and will be visited by Famagusta schools.
