Our approach uses a combination of research, tools and co-design principles to understand a current system, develop new understanding, optimise decision-making and build capacity, infrastructure and momentum for change.
We currently do this through four projects:
This new approach to addressing plastic pollution helps governments understand plastic waste flows and optimise policies to effectively ‘drawdown’ the flow of ocean plastic pollution.
Our vision is a global network of plastic waste-free islands. We are working with governments, councils, businesses and local changemakers to identify and accelerate solutions.
Common Seas wants to inspire a generation of sea champions, and we are working with schools to put plastic pollution and the ocean into the school curriculum.
