JCJ are proud to report that we supported the Floating School’s Maritime Leadership Camp 2023.
The 3-day camp ran from 11-13 August at Lowita Beach, Pinrang, South Sulawesi in Indonesia and gathered 30 young people. 2023’s theme was #BeatPlasticPollution. Participants learned about the marine ecosystem in Indonesia, cleaned up 200kg of rubbish at Lowita Beach, turned it into 22 eco-bricks, and planted mangroves.
For an international perspective one of our committee members Anthony Gleeson – a long term climate justice warrior – gave a presentation over zoom. He got to know the team while sharing information about climate change and the work that JCJ does.
The Floating School reports that this camp was a success and thank our wonderful donors for making this dream a reality for them.
