In May 2022, CR Project Manager Francesca spent 5 weeks on Ambon, to develop a better understanding of the island, work closely with locals, and lay the foundation for a successful implementation of three Litter Traps in the bay of Ambon.
Building a framework of agreements and collaborations with local organizations and institutions such as Research Centers, universities, and NGOs, at a village, city, and provincial level is fundamental. While three Litter Traps are on their way from Rotterdam to Ambon, CLEAR RIVERS is building a strong and reliable local network:
working closely together with the people from Ambon is the key to developing an effective approach to each step of the plastic waste stream at a local scale:
from research and location analysis, from waste collection and sorting to the development of educational programs to create awareness about this worldwide issue and, especially, about CLEAR RIVERS’ solution.
