TALK: BMBF-Forschungsschwerpunkt "Plastik in der Umwelt" // research programme "plastic in the environment"

Who are we / Wer sind wir ?

We are a group of scientists working at the Ecologic Institute, a Berlin-based think tank, and we form the project team for PlastikNet.

What will we do / Was werden wir machen ?

We will give a presentation on the research programme “Plastic in the Environment – Sources • Sinks • Solutions” which is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research. One focus of the talk will be the citizen science campaign Plastic Pirates, which allows young people between 10 and 16 to explore waterways to find, count and document macro- and microplastics.
