It’s here! The first Massive Open Online Course on Marine Litter starts this Monday, October 26th!

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), which serves as the secretariat of the Global Partnership on Marine Litter (GPML), is launching the first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on marine litter today, prepared in collaboration with The Open Universiteit in the Netherlands. Nancy Wallace, the Director of the NOAA Marine Debris Program and Chair of UNEP’s GMPL, contributed a lecture to this curriculum.

This course can be accessed for free by people all over the world and provides examples and case studies of marine debris issues that will help to inspire leadership and stimulate creative solutions to the problem. Students can choose to enroll in the “leadership track” for a two-week course and then continue to an eight-week “expert track”, if they wish to learn more.
