Ocean Plastic Pollution education materials in spanish for latino populations

Posted by 5 Gyres Institute | California, United States

Ocean plastic pollution in the US has gained a lot of attention in the recent decade but mainly among the english speaking demographic. Often, educational materials about this environmental issue are designed without taking into consideration the historical and cultural values of the audience. There is a lack of spanish content available for latino communities; existing material is designed for the general public and then translated. Igniting awareness among the latino community could be amplified by tailoring this material to meet their cultural values. We propose to develop a video series in spanish to drive the connection on such issues of ocean and land-based plastic pollution, oil and climate change. As well, we will build a comprehensive online kit to make freely available for download for latino speaking audience in the US and worldwide.
