COAST CLEANING ENVIRONMENTALLY AWARE IN REYKJAVK | SEEDS 057. | 2018-06-06 - 2018-06-15 | ENVI,EDU , | Age: 18 - 99


Work: The Coast Cleaning in Reykjavik project is a new series of camps organised by SEEDS. Our goal is to clean the whole coastline of Iceland. We are starting with the coastline of Reykjavik and immediate surroundings. SEEDS will be working closely with the municipalities in the capital area and with other organisations and individuals concerned with the issue of waste in the sea and shores. The camp will allow you to learn about global and local environmental issues, especially regarding ocean plastic pollution, as well as to contribute directly to environmental protection by cleaning the coastline around the Reykjavik area.Virtually every piece of plastic that was ever made still exists in some shape or form as plastic takes about 500 to 1,000 years to degrade in nature. Plastic is approximately 90 of all the trash in the ocean, with an estimate of about five trillion individual pieces of plastic floating in the sea. About 80 of that ocean plastic pollution comes from coastal dispersal by people. The best way to help fight this is to clean the coastlines, to avoid trash coming from the land entering the sea and to pick up trash from the sea that has washed up on shore. This project is based on similar projects around the world, where outstanding results have been made with volunteers and beach cleaning. We aim to also host public beach cleaning events in the project to get the local Icelandic people to join us in the coast cleaning efforts. We hope participants of the pr
