Join us for a training workshop for Litter Intelligence with Sustainable Coastlines: a citizen science platform to enable community groups to contribute to a growing national litter database by monitoring their local beaches & auditing the rubbish.

This free workshop will pass on the skills in surveying, data collection, and Health & Safety that will allow attendees to play an important part in this long-term, grassroots effort. Come along to learn how to set up & run a survey, sort & record rubbish in an audit, and add your data into the national database & solutions platform.
