About the workshop
This workshop is for registered Organisers with ICCS. It intends to help you organise and manage an operationally effective, safe, educational and green cleanup in September. We will also provide you with updates about related marine environment issues in Singapore and you will be discussing operational and site details with your Zone Captains.

Please register at:

The workshop will include these sessions:

  1. Updates about the ICCS
    We will provide updates about marine life in Singapore, debris issues and conservation news at the local and international scene of particular relevance.
  2. A detailed discussion about operations – learning from each other
    After a general briefing, we will break into small groups for an effective discussion about operational procedures and tips with your very experienced Zone Captains who have visited your sites already.

    Some of you will be able to contribute to the discussion (we are eager to hear from you), clarify doubts and learn from each other. This is a very active session as you will clarify many doubts, get to know Organisers at neighbouring sites and arrange for Site Recces.

  3. Issues and resources
    We will discuss the marine debris issue, the link to daily living and introduce some tools to help communicate these messages to participants to being about a more meaningful cleanup. You can copy the updated powerpoints and videos (bring a thumbdrive) or download them later.

We are looking forward to seeing you next month!
