Session Description

Session 1: Identifying Priorities


This session aims to identify our priorities within the areas of prevention and reduction of marine debris and to connect these to relevant stakeholders in the decision space.

Part 1: Place4Us and the Marine Debris Virtual Community Center

The Marine Debris Virtual Community Center (VCC) has been opened with the goal to increase collaboration across spatial scales from local to global and across domains from Earth observations and science to societal stakeholders. The VCC is hosted on the social collaboration platform Place4Us ( A main goal is to interest stakeholders in the Marine Debris Decision space to use and provide knowledge. Thus, bringing together local and regional groups with those that act on global scale.

Part 2: Group Work on Priorities

A participatory approach is used to come to a consensus on the priorities for the community. The discourse on priorities is based on what has already been identified and rated in on-line pre-workshop activities.
