African Women in Maritime Organization (WIMAFRICA) "Zero Waste in Our Seas"

Promotion of the Campaign " Zero Waste in Our Seas", Allusive to the Celebration of theWorld Oceans Day

WIMAFRICA is hereby urging all women in maritime organizations from all levels (sub-regional, national, provincial and local, including individuals) to join efforts in order to combine the national celebrations of the World Oceans Day (8 June) with commemorations of the African Day of the Seas and Oceans (25 July), by launching a wide campaign for cleaner and healthier seas in their own countries / provinces / communities, which would culminate with a big closing event on July 25.

This will provide the opportunity to alert and sensitize coastal populations towards a daily contribution in the mitigation of impacts on the marine environment and the threats to marine life due to waste, especially plastics, which are often abandoned in coastal areas and at sea.
