Great Bubble Barrier
Francis Zoet is the co-founder of the Great Bubble Barrier. The Great Bubble Barrier addresses the problem of plastic pollution in our oceans, by focusing on the source: our canals, rivers and channels.
Too much human waste is dumped in our waterways and it brings great harm to the environment and human beings. Aquatic animals and fish get tangled in plastic, ships suffer damages and microplastics pose a health risk from the smallest to largest of organisms. This problem is increasingly seen and recognized by municipalities across the European Union.
The Great Bubble Barrier offers a solution to this problem. Francis Zoet will tell the participants more about the iniaitive.
