MOOC on Marine Litter (2nd ed.)

MOOC on Marine Litter (2nd ed.)

Description

Marine litter is a global problem that affects every ocean of the world. Litter is an environmental, human health and socio-economic problem that is a symptom of a highly disposable society. To create global awareness, United Nations Environment, in cooperation with the Open University of the Netherlands, launched the Massive Open Online Course on Marine Litter.

With worldwide growth in the amount of solid litter thrown away every day and slow rates of degradation, the amount of litter present in the marine environment is increasing. This course seeks to inspire students to take action and leadership in the arena of marine litter through stimulating interaction with all stakeholder groups.

The MOOC on marine litter teaches students through action oriented learning how they can apply successful and inspiring activities to their own local context, regardless of their profession or location. The course presents different options and tools to combat marine pollution such as the use of effective and legitimate tools like the Honolulu Strategy.

The course provides examples and case studies that will inspire leadership at all levels, thereby increasing awareness of and stimulating creative solutions to marine litter problems. Moreover, this course will benefit policymakers, practitioners, and managers who wish to connect with other professionals in order to enhance their knowledge of marine litter issues.

The MOOC is available in two tracks: a leadership track and an expert track. It will start in May 2017 with the Leadership track taking place over a course of 2 weeks. Those students who wish to remain in the course will continue to the Expert track, which will be completed in July 2017 (total of 8 weeks).

A certificate of participation can be obtained by students after their completion of both the Leadership track and the Expert track. Students will also receive free access to all course materials on a 24 hour online platform.

Course format

Leadership Track: 10 hours of learning introducing the student to the basic characteristics and concepts of the marine litter
issue and various strategies to prevent and reduce marine litter. This track consists of 2 blocks geared towards policymakers,
managers and professionals who require an overview of the topic in order to integrate the concepts of the MOOC into their
professions. Students are encouraged to complete this track whether or not they are an official leader.

Expert Track: 30 additional hours consisting of 6 blocks (of which the student will follow at least 4) and a final assignment for
professionals and students who want to acquire more in-depth knowledge, insights and skills relating to prevention of marine
litter. Students undertaking the Expert Track must also complete the Leadership Track for a total of 40 hours of instruction.

The MOOC will start May 22, 2017 with the Leadership Track taking place over a course of 2 weeks. Those students who wish
to remain in the course will continue to the Expert Track, which will be completed by August (total of 8 weeks).

#K7MrB3# thinking she's gotten past dealing with her Use stripes correctly. Stripes can be your figure flattering best friend, or your worst fashion enemy. The trick is knowing when and how to use them. Get your materials. You will need a watch face. You can use one from any old watch, as long as it's still working. Grosgrain Fabulous also has a fantastic tutorial for re sizing sweaters. I have already re sized quite a few of my boxy sweaters to a more fitting (and flattering) size. Resizing is as simple as this: turn your sweater inside out; put it on; pin the excess; take it off; sew along the pins.. The fabric used in the manufacturer of swim suits was also reduced causing the disappearance of the little skirt flap so popular on one piece suits. Fabric reduction was responsible for bare midriffs and the introduction of the 2 piece swim suit. Many women wore flat heeled shoes for safety and comfort in the workplace. Whichever you prefer, be sure there are smaller pockets for your wallet, keys, phone and pens. Women should also have a purse or clutch for dates or parties. Sunglasses, stylish belts and a variety of jewelry, from small and simple to big and bright, will transform any outfit. Sift powdered sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle pastries before serving at room temperature. If not serving the same day, stack the pastries in airtight plastic containers and freeze for up to 2 weeks. To serve, reheat to freshen in a 325 degree preheated oven for about 7 to 12 minutes or until warm, cool slightly, and decorate with powdered sugar and cinnamon.. In short, I am hooked. I have found exactly what I want and need, with lower prices to boot. I never would have believed it. Is most of your height in your torso or legs? for me it in my torso, meaning that i need to be very careful about what shirts i pick. 34" waist + 34" inseam seams to work fine for me. Shirt wise . Wholesale fashion accessories might include items like handbags, bracelets, wallets for men, necklaces and pendants, as well as earrings. These can be found in different designs and fashions, and are all manufactured from different materials. As a business owner, you have to be able to determine what consumers ask for most, so that as soon as you are certain, you are able to buy it in wholesale.. The Review!Media Blasters has a pretty good selection of mixes here with four audio tracks, two of which are relatively unnecessary if DVD players are built properly. The Japanese and English language mixes are presented in both a 5.1 mix and a 2.0 mix to ensure the best overall playback. The stereo mixes are done in a standard minimal 192kbps encoding while the 5.1 mixes get the full 448kbps. drapekings1 oiselle amazonpressroom citybbqs xvideos-v amazonsweetshow awweather slimvapepencoupon freeradio aetc top5pokemon viuedu prestonacuk
