A new kid-friendly website has arrived at IMO! The website (http://kids.imo.org/) includes a specially- commissioned animation showing how IMO works to protect the marine environment and the atmosphere. By clicking on the colourful links, young people can learn more about IMO’s work.
Topics include protecting the atmosphere; dealing with waste; clean oceans; invasive species; particularly sensitive sea areas; and protecting marine life from noise pollution.
The development of the website was partly funded by the Global Partnership for Marine Litter (GPML), for which IMO is co-leading on activities related to sea-based sources of marine litter, together with FAO.
