"Shellfishing without litter" on World Oceans Day: youth action on plastic pollution

June 08 2018 @ 9:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Since march 2016, Ocean Alive undertakes the “Shellfishing without litter” campaign, which consists in monthly awareness and beach cleaning actions in the Sado estuary engaging volunteers, stakeholders and particularly, local fisherwomen.

In Portugal, young people aged 15-18 years old have negative behaviours and disregard the marine litter problem. In order to tackle this issue, on the 8th of June we will dedicate to an awareness and beach cleaning action of the Sado estuary margins engaging 75 students of this age group from local schools.

This action has the support of UNESCO-IGCP National Committee as institutional partner. It will be made in partnership with Setúbal and Palmela Municipalities, Barbosa du Bocage and Palmela middle schools, Club of the Most Beautiful Bays of the World and is sponsored by Iami and El Cristo.
