Main content

In recent years, UiB's students, together with good partners, have cleared more than 8.5 tonnes of plastic and other marine waste from our coast. It is an important contribution to improving the situation for everything that lives in and by the sea, but the fight against plastic waste is far from over!

In addition to making an effort for nature and wildlife, UiB's beach clean-up campaigns are a great way to get to know fellow students, staff and organizations who are passionate about the environment and climate.

Participants will receive a free lunch.
