Learning can be fun! It has been proven again by the children in a Dutch primary school. This was the third school programme in a row organized by Healthy Seas and its partners.
A one week long school programme ended with an information market and games last Friday at De Trinoom primary school in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. 550 school children spent the week learning about turtle and tortoise conservation and the problems of ghost nets and plastics in the ocean. On the final day, the children could also meet our divers, try their equipment and hear their stories. They also had the opportunity to create artworks from plastic waste, release animal puppets from ghost nets and feel themselves being entangled in fishing nets.
Astro & Echo, the new friends of children were also there together for the first time… Check out the photos how much fun we had!
Education and awareness raising are key things in order to spread the word about marine litter and the importance of clean and healthy seas. The programme was carried out in collaboration with Healthy Seas, Herpetofauna Foundation and Ghost Fishing with the involvement of Desso, Star Sock and ECONYL.
