  • Overview of the location and effort of clean-up activities

  • Overview of the existing capacity and partnerships in each council region helping to address marine debris and litter

  • The latest news and approaches from Australia and around the world of tackling the marine debris issue

  • A partnership approach to develop a local Source Reduction Plan
