Taking action with schoolchildren
We believe in the power of awareness-raising to involve the younger generation in the fight against widespread litter.
At the same time, over the last few years we've seen a real need for commitment among younger people, and a desire to give their time and join the ecological movement.
To take action against litter, MerTerre has set up the Adopt’1 Spot program, which has a threefold objective :
- Raise awareness about litter pollution ;
- Prevent their spreading in natural and marine environments ;
- Measure to obtain the data needed for better management of the problem at local and national level, to build an appropriate response and target the resources needed to reduce waste at source.
How to act together ?
We offer educational activities to support your students in the Adopt'1 Spot program throughout the year.
Adopt'1 Spot is a 3-in-1 participatory science program
that combines education, preservation and monitoring.
It introduces students to the scientific approach in the field, makes them aware of their ability to protect a place and helps them think about possible solutions.
