Since 2017, the Federal Environment Agency (UBA) has been operating the Internet platform marine litter at www.muell-im-meer.de. The main objective of the platform is to provide organisational support for the German Roundtable on Marine Litter and its working groups, in particular by providing a password-protected member area. In addition, the public part of the platform serves public relations work and the bundling of information on marine litter. In this project the Ecologic Institute is responsible for the further development, relaunch, operation, technical maintenance and hosting of the internet platform. Ecologic Institute is creating and implementing a development guide on structural and functional changes for the internet platform.
The goals of the platform development include:
- better visibility for the results of the Round Table on Marine Litter,
- better visibility for the activities of the members of the Round Table on Marine Litter,
- simplify public relations and internal communication of the Round Table on Marine Litter,
- transformation of the internal website area.
