MARLISCO educational material on marine litter targeting formal & non-formal educators

Within MARLISCO the educational material “Know Feel Act! To Stop Marine Litter” has been prepared to inform, sensitise and enable European teachers and students to take action to tackle the problem of litter in our seas and coasts. The material has been designed to primarily serve youth aged 10-15 yrs, but can be used also by educators outside the formal schooling system.

This is a joint product of the MARLISCO consortium and within the project duration (2012-2015) it will be translated and applied in the 15 partner countries. Within the MARLISCO project the material is solely shared in its electronic form (but partners are welcome to raise additional funds to produce it in hardcopies!).

The material contains 17 activities, each combining a learning activity part (4 pages) and a worksheet for students (1 page). The activities are self-standing and can be applied separately or combined in clusters, so to meet the needs of the educator.
