Celebrate a “Healthy Ocean, a Healthy Planet” on World Ocean Day,
preventing pollution from plastics and microplastics, understanding Ocean and Climate, and exploring the Blue Society… 

With SeaChange,  Marlisco project (Marine Litter in European Seas – Social Awareness and Co-Responsibility), Ocean and Climate Platform .

In fifty years, plastic has taken such an important place in our daily life that lives without it seems hardly possible.
However, the impact of plastic in the ocean and its degradation into microplastics is raising significant concerns.

This is why the World Ocean Network wishes to highlight a tool kit guide preventing pollution from plastics and microplastics: 

Increasing Ocean LitterAcy 

In this guide, are gathered different types of documents that can feed into an activity related to marine litter and plastic pollution.
All contents have been selected in the idea of organising an event on marine litter and plastic pollution during World Oceans Day.
