Webinar: New tools to prevent marine litter across North America

Did you know that over 80% of litter found in the ocean originates from land?

Marine litter is more than a coastal issue. Items littered in communities far from the coast can travel—with the wind and through streams, rivers and storm drains—all the way to the ocean. All along the way, litter can impact ecosystems, communities, infrastructure, and even economic activity.

Reducing marine litter needs to be a collective effort—and you can be a part of the solution.

Be the first to see new tools and resources developed to help community organizations, municipalities and cities all across North America take action locally and raise public awareness on the journey of litter to the ocean. Be a part of the change.

Learn about the CEC’s efforts to reduce marine litter and the impactful new toolkits designed to raise awareness of water and trash flows, inspire community engagement and action, and provide solutions for individuals to prevent and reduce land-based marine litter.

Speakers:

  • Lucie Robidoux, Head of Ecosystems Unit, CEC
  • Julie Roy, Project Lead for Ecosystems Unit, CEC
  • Nicklas Rønning, Managing Partner, Signifly Inc.

Moderated by: Georgina O’Farrill, Outreach and Partnerships Officer, CEC.

This webinar will be delivered in English, with simultaneous interpretation to French and Spanish.

Since 2017, the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) has been facilitating collaboration and developing tools to address land-based marine litter in North America. We hope you’ll join us and help make a difference for our communities and our oceans.
