Large scale educational program started in the Netherlands. CLEAR RIVERS is currently collaborating with six high schools to challenge 500 students to come with innovative ideas to improve our Litter Traps. The collaboration supports technical education and creates awareness about plastic pollution. The students will work in teams and challenge each other to come up with the best proposals. The finalists will test their prototype in the largest Makers Space of the Netherlands under the guidance of students of the Rotterdam University. The winning team will have their proposal exhibited in the Rotterdam Maritime Museum.


CLEAR RIVERS works on education to create more awareness and knowledge about plastic pollution and its solutions. New generations are educated to prevent and solve the issues of marine litter.

On the 26th of January CLEAR RIVERS, together with its consortium partners, will present its project at the Climate Adaptation Summit 2021.


We are part of the consortium winner of the Agro-Water Competition, for the category Flood Based Systems, organized by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Vietnam.


The feasibility study, that the consortium is carrying out at the moment, aims at looking into how marine plastic litter could be recycled and turned into floating platforms for agricultural purposes and water storage in flood and drought-prone areas such as the Mekong Delta as a tool to enhance farmers’ livelihood, combat climate change and reduce plastic pollution.


Here is the video interview of CLEAR RIVERS and its consortium partners, HZ University of Applied Sciences, the Institute for Circular Economy Development (ICED), Kim Delta T&C, Can Tho University, and HAN University of Applied Sciences, for the Climate Adaptation Summit 2021.

Let us introduce you SIMocean, a group of 6 international students from the University of St.Gallen that collaborate with CLEAR RIVERS and FAB to tackle plastic pollution in Malaysia.

Education is an important part of our all-inclusive approach. We believe in developing projects with motivated students to exchange ideas and learn from each other.

Big thanks to our partner Unibrick that supports the project with the design of the bricks.
