Marine litter: several dissemination activities carried out by the GHOST team

Weeks full of events for the students! Between March and April, the GHOST team realized dissemination activities specifically tailored to different types of secondary schools: three thematic workshops on marine litter were carried out, structured in such a way as to actively involve over 200 students of different ages and competences. The first seminar took place at the intermediate high school "M. Todesco "in Padua where Dr. Vanessa Moschino illustrated the impacts of marine litter -in particular fishing nets, to five classes of this institute, highlighting in particular possible actions for their reduction and / or mitigation.
The second seminar was addressed to students in Applied Ecology, a degree course in the framework of  the Environmental Sciences (Ca 'Foscari University): the students, on the occasion of their  visit to the Institute of Marine Sciences in Venice have been able to deepen their knowledge on the research activities carried out at ISMAR, in particular those aimed at evaluating biological resources and the effects of human impacts on marine ecosystems. The students also visited the information point of the GHOST project, set up in one of the institute's premises, where Dr. Nicoletta Nesto illustrated the objectives and the main results obtained within the project. Finally, the third seminar, always organized at the ISMAR headquarters in Venice, was aimed at two classes of students from two different scientific high schools, respectively the Benedetti of Venice and the Majorana Laterza of Putignano. Dr. Vanessa Moschino, in particular, illustrated major problems for the local lagoon and marine environments, mainly  the pollution due to microplastics in sea water and sediments; moreover, she made the students participate in the results of the GHOST project, inviting them to learn further by presenting and distributing to them the informative material already realized and made available at the information point of the project.
