COLLECT DATA ON THE CITY’S PLASTIC WITH A LOCALLY DEVELOPED APP
Jetsam are organising a series of survey weekends with the University of Portsmouth to get a city-wide snapshot of where all of Portsmouth’s plastics are. What does this survey look like? It’s just a group of normal folks who care about our community taking some time out of their weekend to go and photograph as much plastic as they can using the Jetsam app. The data can be used by organisations & institutions to better understand how plastics flow in our city, and better inform targeted interventions.
Jetsam is a locally developed app that can turn a walk along the beach, a commute to work or a stroll through the countryside into a Citizen Science adventure. Jetsam lets you to catalog the plastics that you see out and about, and helps gather the data that is needed to make a difference.
The dates of the survey are the long weekend of the 1st to the 3rd of April.
You can take part in 3 simple steps:
3. Take photos of plastic wherever you find it
You can find out more and get updates by going to the surveys section of the app. These surveys are a collaboration between Jetsam and the University of Portsmouth funded by the Flotilla Foundation. You can also find out more on the Jetsam Facebook page.
