May 13th: Shetland Visit 2015 I fly to Shetland to to meet the Shetland Amenity Trust whose work addressing marine and beach litter is second to none in the UK. They have been working to keep beaches clean for over 19 years and annually lead the Da Voar Redd Up litter clean-ups across the islands which last last year involved over 7,000 volunteers. I am looking forward to joining the last day of the Redd Up in Scalloway on Burwick
I will be visiting a selection of beaches, schools and key organisations to explore the idea of collaborating with the Shetland Amenity Trust to deliver the Littoral sci-art project across the Islands over the next two years.
