Malia at EGU 2019

Posted by Teresita Gravina on 9 April 2019

Malia is at the European Geosciences Union in Vienna, unfolding from April 7 to 12.

Teresita Gravina from Airicerca and Costantina Cossu from E. Fermi in Alghero are very proudly presenting the poster titled ” Tools and approaches to introducing the marine litter problem in the classroom: first results of MALIA”

In this communication, we show an outdoor activity to learn from rubbish collected on beaches. The activities carried out in Cyprus (Faros beach, Kato Paphos) and Spain (Cabo Cope Regional Park, Aguillas beach, Murcia Region), involved the following steps:

1) establishment of a protocol to collect and learn from litter found on the beach, working in groups;

2) Tailoring of the Ocean Conservancy protocol for collecting marine litter at European beaches in the 4 countries involved in the MALIA project;

3) Collection/ Classification of marine litter along a chosen beach, qualitative and quantitative analysis of marine litter collected and data analysis involving the students;

4) Students presentation of data to their school community, improving their scientific and social competences.

We are certain the Conference will be a great opportunity to network and acquire new knowledge on #marinelitter and #education!
