To stimulate reflection on ocean culture, the origins, impacts, and solutions to reduce litter at sea, this month the Port of Imbituba is promoting the free course “Science and Action Against Litter at Sea.” This initiative is part of the actions of the SCPAR Porto de Imbituba Environmental Education Program, implemented by Acquaplan Tecnologia e Consultoria Ambiental. Lessons will be held on July 20, 22 and 27, and on August 5, 2022, from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., at the Municipal Public Library of Conego Itamar Luiz da Costa, downtown.
The lead theoretical authors behind the idea are oceanographer Gisele Aguiar de Oliveira Fernandez and marine biologist Eileen Spitzner, who have a partnership between Cooperzimba and Imbituba’s Department of Education, Culture and Sports. Applications can be submitted by sending your name, address and phone number to [email protected], until July 15.
According to the organization of the course, the objective of the program is to deepen knowledge about the problem of litter at sea and its impact on the marine environment, as well as to promote the creation of knowledge networks to work on combating the problem and the processes that arise, to develop activities aimed at critical thinking and community action. The course will provide a certificate for participants who have 100% attendance. In all, 30 places will be made available to all the residents of Imbituba and the region, mainly to “champion the desired changes in the scope of urban solid waste management”.
