News: Massive Open Online Course on Marine Litter - April 29

Registration is open and inaugural class will take place on 29 April 2019 at the Open University of the Netherlands.

On April 29th, 2019, the Open University of the Netherlands will have the inaugural class of its newest Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Marine Litter. The course will be available in all UN languages, making a global issue available to a global audience. The course content is tailored to the different regions of our planet.
The previous Marine Litter MOOC (provided for free and available in English and Spanish) attracted thousands of participants. Ocean pollution is a global issue, therefore the Leadership track of the MOOC is being made available in all UN languages and Portuguese. 'We realize that more than 1.5 billion people speak English or Spanish. However, there are many more world citizens who live in countries with an immense coastline. Think for example of South America, China, Russia or the Middle East. Marine Litter is also an immense problem in these regions. Through this MOOC we want to activate participants to come into action against marine litter. In order to do so we provide them with good knowledge and tools and many inspiring examples' announced Ansje Löhr, the project leader of the MOOC.

Registration for the MOOC is currently open. From April 29th 2019, students will be able to participate in training in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Portuguese and Russian.
