The coordinators of The Future of Plastic Waste (TFOPW) program in Seychelles are committed to educating the younger generation on the issue of plastic pollution and solutions to address the issue.

"ISS students learn about plastic waste and solutions" headlines the Nation newspaper, Wednesday, November 23, 2022

Katrin Perchat, in charge of Recycling Machine, and Victoria Alis, in charge of Connect Collect, two of the three projects of the TFOPW program, spoke to a class at the International School of Seychelles in November 2022.

During an interactive session, students had the opportunity to learn about the three interconnected TFOPW projects and share their concerns and actions to reduce plastic pollution.
