Leiden, Holland – Today the European project MARLISCO launched a Video Contest targeting students and their schools, in 14 European coastal countries. This initiative encourages youngsters accross Europe to get in touch with the issue of marine litter and share their ideas, giving the young generation a chance to have their say in this challenging problem. Teams can submit their videos until 14th Feruary 2014.
