A number of education and outreach activities will be planned throughout the two-year project. These activities are designed to raise awareness about marine debris, facilitate understanding of the connections between actions and impacts in the marine environment, and encourage behavior change. These activities will include both formal (e.g., courses or modules) and informal (e.g., lectures, workshops, cleanups open to voluntary participation by members of the community) education experiences.
Attend a virtual workshop to expand your knowledge of single-use plastics and how they impact the environment.
