Cientificos de la Basura (
Cientificos de la Basura (

Founded in 2007, “Cientificos de la Basura” is a citizen science program that promotes scientific collaboration among more than 1000 schoolchildren and 40 teachers from currently 11 Latin American countries. The goal is to bring the scientific method closer to the students, generate relevant scientific information and raise awareness among the inhabitants of vulnerable coastal areas in Latin America about the social, economic and environmental impacts of marine litter. Students position themselves as agents of positive change by using their own research findings about marine litter to propose solutions to local environmental authorities.
