Recruiting people world wideto fight marine litter!

The sea is actually silently screaming in pain.
Each and every action of everyone leads to protecting the future of the beautiful sea.
The problem of marine litter continues to increase all over the world. It is said that by 2050 the amount of marine debris, including plastic, will be larger than the amount of fish, and urgent measures are needed. However the fact that about 80% of marine litter flows from the land (town) along the rivers is not well known, and yet we have to reduce this amount.
For this matter, the Nippon Foundation and the World Cosplay Summit Executive Committee have teamed up to launch a new project aimed at combating marine litter.

Please give us your strength to help us protect the beautiful sea with the power of cosplayers from around the world, so we can continue to take amazing pictures in beautiful and clean locations!

【Let's protect the beautiful sea with cosplayers】

Action category

Looking forward to 2020, we are looking for cosplayers from around the world to conduct activities and initiatives aimed at fighting marine litter, including examples of activities that lead to marine litter reduction and efforts to raise awareness of marine litter.

We are looking for the costume making recipes of cosplayers who are conscious about making costumes reducing the marine litter or costumes made from reused materials and following the 3Rs Rule (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) for their costume-making process. Just post on SNS with the hashtag "#ecocos"!
