International School of Stavanger in the Dutch News

ISS in the Dutch news!

A few weeks ago, a crew from By The Ocean We Unite, visited our school to raise awareness of plastic pollution in our oceans. They shared experiences of their sailing journey crossing the North Sea from Rotterdam to Stavanger and gave our students many useful tips on how to prevent plastic pollution. In Norway, the team of 14 people has visited and worked together with the International Research Institute of Stavanger and the University of Bergen. By The Ocean We Unite was followed by a film crew and the footage was now shown on the local Dutch tv channel called Omroep Flevoland. You can watch the news report of their journey on this link.
