We know that most marine litter originates on land. Since 2017, the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) has been facilitating collaboration and developing tools to address land-based marine litter in North America. In this webinar, speakers will present new tools developed by the CEC to help communities, cities, and organizations in North America take action locally and raise public awareness about the journey of litter to the ocean. This webinar will be delivered in English, with simultaneous interpretation to French and Spanish.
