The aim of this project is to prevent plastics from the land ending up in the Wadden Sea. Understanding the problem helps to achieve this goal as effectively as possible. A practical approach was chosen during this project: learning by doing. The knowledge gained is widely shared, so that the insights also have great added value outside the scope of this project.
The ‘Stop Plastic from City to Wad’ project is being carried out on behalf of Rijkswaterstaat Northern Netherlands, Water Board Noorderzijlvest, Municipality of Groningen, Groningen Seaports and is financially supported by the Wadden Fund. The Stop Plastic project from City to Wad will run from 2021 to 2024.
