Researcher at Roskilde University at the forefront when 57,000 children and young people study plastic pollution in Denmark
Pupils at elementary and high schools throughout Denmark will as part of this year’s Mass Experiment carry out the world’s first national scientific mapping of plastic pollution. The results will provide crucial new data about the extent and type of plastic pollution in Denmark.
