Ocean Legacy Foundation (OLF), a Canadian nonprofit organization that develops and implements worldwide plastic pollution emergency response programs with the goal to end ocean plastic pollution, has launched EPIC Academy.
EPIC Academy is a free online educational platform providing essential knowledge regarding ocean plastic pollution, cleanup efforts and solutions for creating plastic-free lands and waters.
This digital OLF curriculum includes 10 lessons pertaining to ocean plastic pollution, the environmental impact of plastic pollution, and how communities around the world can take action to manage plastic waste and solve the ocean plastic pollution crisis.
OLF’s goal for EPIC Academy is to provide any individual, business or organization interested in learning more about ocean plastic pollution with an easily accessible and free resource to start the learning journey; ultimately building a global community working to advance plastic pollution cleanup efforts, evidence-based policy expansion and infrastructure development to better manage plastic resources.
