We recognise that it is the people who have the power to change the current waste trajectory as human activities continue to put enormous pressure on nature.
With increasing population, and a more consumerist lifestyle globally, the earth's carrying capacity continues to be undermined.
Working with our participants, we use research, citizen science and education to identify and activate viable policy solutions to one of our greatest challenges - marine litter.
Many small islands and coastal cities are heavily dependent on the blue economy for economic and social development. We believe that the top-down, one-size-fits-all approach does not always yield the most sustainable results. Our research quantifies the issue by establishing baseline data and allows our participants to design appropriate solutions for their unique needs.
Citizen science allows for public participation in data collection.
Our participants are engaged with the problem of marine litter. They understand that waste in the ocean is primarily driven by litter on land. They become directly involved in collecting the data, which leads to a deeper understanding of the issues, and leads to better informed decisions....learning transcends the 'classroom', and schools, organisations and communities are strengthened
Our education programme highlights the interconnectedness between social, economic, environmental, cultural and political issues. Our participants explore their environmental issues, identify appropriate solutions and take appropriate actions to improve their local environment. Participants are encouraged to think about the 'how' and 'why' questions and devise responsible solutions.
Information empowers and we cannot fix what we do not measure.
Our model promotes active learning and engagement. This approach empowers participants to share their voices and make a difference in their 'communities', both in local policy, development and implementation, as well as, in practical 'on the ground' activities, such as the school plastic programme, the corporate plastic elimination programme and community ghost gear removal initiative.
