INTERACT: Plastic in the Arctic
Plastic found in the Arctic is a global problem – the tip of the iceberg. It is a result not only of the production and industry development but of our daily life habits as well. The plastic waste and more dangerous microplastic are found everywhere: in the oceans, ice, animals’ stomachs or even snow. The plastic waste influence on the environment is evident and alarming, but the scientists are trying to estimate what would be its impact on human’s health and life. The aim of the classes is to rethink our daily life habits and encourage all of us to make something environment friendly.
