Children at De Bloemaert primary school in Tilburg, the Netherlands, spent a month learning about ‘plastic soup’ and the problem of ghost fishing nets. Interactive lessons and games were focused on keeping nature clean, the effects of litter on nature, and the problem of plastic soup – the plastic litter that is polluting seas and oceans. The programme was being carried out in collaboration with Healthy Seas, Herpetofauna Foundation, Ghost Fishing and local artists.

The children had the chance to create artwork together with professional artists, and their works were put on display at an exhibition. As part of the one month long activities on 29 March an information market was organized with the involvement of live animals and divers in full gear, where children had an interactive experience.

By the end of the school programme, the children raised €2.487,67 which will be entirely spent on the protection of turtles. Thank you all for your efforts!
