Marine Litter in European Seas – Teen Video Contest!

Have you noticed all the litter that appears on the beach? Where do you think it comes from and what are the problems it can cause in the sea? What can we do about it?

I bet you have ideas and answers to these questions – SHARE them with us!

If you’re between 7 and 18 years old then get your camera ready and participate with your school class, club or association!

Learn about the problem of marine litter in the UK and shoot your story in a creative and insightful short video. Tell us why we should care, how it can be solved or what you have done in your school or community about this issue. If your video is one of the winners, we will make sure that your views are heard loud and strong, together with other youngsters from Europe!

Follow these 6 simple steps with children from your school, class, or club:
