Updates from the ICCS team

Sites in Singapore are just about full; see:

Individuals interested in the cleanup can now sign-up with us
(they choose from four sites around Singapore):

We will be announcing the Site Buddy Briefing (05 Sep 2009) next – it is meant for volunteers who are be helping out their Organisers in September as Team Leaders/Site Buddies and for individual participants who signed up with us directly.

Webpage edits

I took some time to update the ICCS Webpage at coastalcleanup.nus.edu.sg.

Major edits

  1. The Home Page now list only major items (no more adverts): status, organiser’s workshop (will be replaced with the Site Buddies Briefing later), Individual Registration. Principal sources of information about the cleanup are listed on the right column.
  2. Integrated contents of “Downloads” page into the “Organiser’s Page”.
  3. “Organiser’s Page” now includes a preamble which addresses the typical questions of a new organiser.
  4. The “Photo Galleries” page has been collapsed into the “Results” page, and renamed the “Results & Photos” page. This reduces the number of sections and places the results together with photos – materials which journalists and bloggers request for the most.
  5. Sections renamed to better reflect content – “Articles and Links” has become “Resources”, “Zone” has become “Zones & Sites” and “ICCS Otters” to “Coordinators”.

Minor edits

  1. Participants page – now includes the Individual Participant Registration link for ICCS 2009.
  2. Zones & Sites page – now includes ICCS Site Status.
  3. Articles page – now includes the two short promotional videos from Ocean Conservancy (2008, 2009) amongst other edits.
  4. ICCS Otters – rearranged.
