Zero Tolerance towards Littering: A joint project between The Maldives and Seychelles

Following the exchange visit by a group of students from Praslin Secondary School to their Small Islands Voice counterparts in the Maldives at the Madhrasathul Ahmadhiyya School in January 2004, a joint project was designed 'Zero Tolerance towards Littering'.

Students in Seychelles have mad a good start by putting litter bins in place, conducting competitions and awareness activities, but still littering problems persist. Their preliminary report explains some of the difficulties encountered.

The students at Praslin Secondary School have embarked on an ambitious action plan for 2005. The project activities in 2004 and 2005 are described in an essay by Lorraine Stravens.
