As part of the Citizen Science Platform WaterLab, we researched and mapped the existing citizen science initiatives that monitor plastic waste in the Dutch delta. We have performed several studies together with students from the TU Delft on system analysis and have mapped the actor and initiative environment, in order to advise Rijkswaterstaat with whom and when and where to focus the monitoring observatory. We furthermore started cooperation and networking between the existing initiatives in the field and made visible what differences there are between these initiatives via classification mapping. Visit also the TU Delft WaterLab page (in Dutch) that describes the project.
