It is commonly known that marine litter is a major global problem. Taking action directly in and on the oceans and reducing litter input coming from the land is therefore urgently necessary. This will happen not only through innovative ideas, but an enhanced awareness towards the topic within societies is important, since the global pollution of water bodies with litter is a man-made problem.
The project “The Parliament Of The Fish” is an approach of the Kurtheater Bitterfeld e.V. dessau-roßlau, EUCC-D and associated partners to increase the awareness and also an attempt to motivate people to become active against the proceeding water pollution in their region. But this shall happen not by holding up the morals, but by letting art speak! The centrepiece of the project is the development of an international theatre play which will address a very serious environmental matter in a comical and bizarre way. The project is for students of ages 8-12 and will be realized in Germany, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia. The project is under the patronage of Prof. Dr. Johanna Wanka, German Federal Minister of Education and Research.
