The Tasmanian Coastal Waste and Marine Debris project is a PhD research exploring education to address coastal waste and marine debris in Tasmania.

Tasmanian Coastal Waste and Marine Debris: initiated as a partnership project between the Alcorso Foundation, Bookend Trust and the University of Tasmania’s Faculty of Education.

This research project, undertaken as part of a PhD by Leah Page, is exploring the ways that context frames and shapes education approaches to address coastal waste and marine debris in Tasmania.

The project aims to situate past and present education approaches in Tasmania within broader understandings of coastal waste marine debris issues from different perspectives.

Data collected is being shared with community, industry and government to highlight issues, heighten awareness and provide recommendations for future educational strategies to influence behaviour change.

Leah and The Alcorso Foundation wish to acknowledge Dr. Jennifer Lavers for her valuable assistance in the development of this project.
