    JEAN’s New Educational Materials on Marine Litter Problem for Display Made by Support from the UPS Foundation

    The problem of marine litter is difficult to solve just by simple cleanup activities because it crosses over various domains.  Therefore, JEAN has been putting our major emphasis on the citizens’ enlightenment program in order to amplify citizens’ participation in the cleanup activities, especially in the International Coastal Cleanup (ICC), and strengthened information drive linked with the experience that is to have public deepen their understanding with accurate knowledge.For that purpose, we made several sets of A1 size photo panels that show the typical marine litter problems affecting marine wildlife, among other things, from our earlier time of action.  We used it in our own events, as well as lending them for outside groups’ exhibitions.  Those panels, however, had been used nearly 20 years and become so old and damaged by frequent shipment and display...

    Marine debris addressed through ‘Education at young age’
    : Development of Guidebook and DVD on marine debris for Korean primary school teachers


    Not only is marine debris an eyesore on the shores, it also causes ecological, economic, and social damages. It requires a huge cost to clean up. In Korea, many policy makers and civil servants tend to think that the costly cleanup is the most important policy option to pursue to address the marine debris issue. The cleanup is, however, a temporary solution that can remove a very small amount of debris from the marine environment. Costly and inefficient cleanup may become a national burden. We should not expect an e asy solution to the marine debris problems that have persisted for decades. International communities stress the importance of education to change people’s behavior and knowledge on marine debris as the final solution for the debris issue...

    ☞ World most expensive Christmas tree VS world most Marine Debris decorated Christmas tree

    During Christmas season 2010, I heard from the news on television that “Abu Dhabi’s Emirates Palace hotel has created what is believed to be the world’s most expensively decorated Christmas tree, bejeweled with precious gems valued at more than US$11milllion.  The hotel’s showpiece tree stretches 13 meters high. In a bid to create a new Guinness World Record the hotel management said it wanted the world to know that the Kempinski-managed Emirates Palace knew how to celebrate the festive season in style. &qu ot; I thought wow, what a waste of an idea!! I could not understand what good it will do to the world but to publicize the hotel for certain group of people who can afford the luxury.  What do they celebrate?  At the same time I struggle to raise awareness on the environmental issue to save our world which is more precious and valuable than these gems.  It is none replaceable and surely it will affect all human kind if we don’t slow down our consumer behavior and change our way of living to sufficiently....
