The MARLISCO project and its aim – to stop marine litter together – was the reason for my last post, which you can read here. One important aspect of the project was the short video competition: youngsters were asked to catch marine litter on film.
In total, more than 2000 students contributed to 379 videos. By participations in the video contest, students became part of the discussion concerning the future of marine ecosystems; at school, they explored various aspects of the problem, including the responsibility of the society towards stoping marine litter and the series of actions that can be taken to minimize the consequences of human action.
Each country selected their best video and the 14 national winners were announced recently. The video above is a compilation of the winning videos (you can also find it here). Some countries have also made their list of videos available on Youtube, such as the UK, with the finalist project entries here.
