The Tangaroa Blue Foundation invites you to join our 2019 South Mission Beach Marine Debris Source Reduction Plan Workshop.
What is a Source Reduction Plan?
If all we do is clean up, that’s all we’ll ever do. This Source Reduction Plan Workshop invites community members, local businesses, school and government representatives to assist in the development of a local plan that stops litter at its source. Everyone is welcome and you don’t have to have experience in this field, just an interest in protecting our local environment and the Great Barrier Reef.
Once you have good baseline data from a clean-up site, you can use this data to create an understanding of what the most common items are found and where they might be coming from. This enables individuals and communities to engage with all likely stakeholders and partnerns to create a strategy that would stop those items collected from ever entering the environment in the first place.
Using data collected in teh Australian Marine Debris Initiative Database (AMDI) from local clean-ups, this workshop will identify an item that is prevalent in the region and attendees will work together to create a plan to address it.
The workshop will be held at South Mission Beach Community Hall (Frog’s Hollow) on Thursday, 7th of November 2019. Times are from 9am – 1pm with lunch until 2pm.
