Operation Jonas


Alone it seems impossible, but together a lot can be changed.

With this in mind Operation Jonas was founded. The objective of Operation Jonas is to accelerate the transition to less plastic waste. We want to inform citizens and entrepreneurs of the municipality of Katwijk, The Netherlands, and make them aware of the enormous amount of plastic soup in the ocean. This is done during the week of May 31 to June 8, through several activities, such as teaching at schools and a college tour in Leiden. We want to clean up the municipality's plastic waste together with the citizens and entrepreneurs of Katwijk. Do you join Operation Jonas?
