DESCRIPTION OF ACTION
The RoskatPois! project assesses the causes of littering and the sources and pathways of litter both for macrolitter and microscopic litter, focusing on plastic litter, which accounts for most of the litter entering the marine environment. The project will set targets and draw up a roadmap for measures to be taken to achieve the targets. A contest for ideas will also be organised to develop effective and innovative measures. Up-to-date information is actively provided at the Finnish Environment Institute’s website meriroskat.fi (in Finnish) and in various social media channels.
