Mapping Portsmouth’s Plastic Launch

Plastic pollution affects all of our lives but tackling the problem is complex. There is almost no reliable data about where it is found in cities or why it ends up in these places. This makes it impossible to effectively reduce plastic pollution.

Please join us for the launch of the MAPP project, the world’s first city wide plastic survey. The University has teamed up with Jetsam Tech Ltd and is looking for members of our community to help us map plastic pollution in the city using the Jetsam app. We will be running 5 city wide plastic surveys over the coming months starting on 12th and 13th November.

Join us at the Institute of Marine Sciences in Eastney to learn about this exciting project and why we need your help. You will also have the opportunity to witness the research into plastic pollution being done by the University of Portsmouth. There will be demonstrations, tours, talks and a chance to meet the team and our partners.
