「For zero marine waste」

Clean Ocean Ensemble is Non Profit Organization. We consider various approaches to solve the problem of marine waste.

The members of this NPO are all OV of the Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteers, mainly young people in their 20s and 30s. We have the knowledge and experience in Asia, South America, Africa and around the world. We want use it for the next generation and for a better future.

There are things we can see and do because we have taken action by looking at the current state of the world’s garbage problem.

We can see Japan and the world. Sometimes we make full use of multiple languages. Also we continue to take various approaches to solve problems.


We are currently working in the Kanto area and Shodoshima to solve the marine waste problem.

We are developing two activities, “Collection and survey” and “Environmental education”. We are implementing projects rooted in the community and people, aiming to realize a society with zero marine waste.

About the organization name

We named it Clean Ocean Ensemble.
We chose this name with the hope that we can all work together to make a beautiful sea.

The marine waste problem is becoming more serious all over the world. This problem is complicated by thoughts and actions of every person in the world.

This problem is so big that it’s hard to realize how your actions relate to it.
First, let’s get to know the reality and this problem. And we think it’s important to take action, even if it’s small.

It will be a great help if more people think about the marine waste problem and take action with one person or one person.
It would be great if we could increase the number of friends who can make the beautiful sea by letting them know about our activities.

We believe that it is important to consider various approaches, continue trial and error, and sustain effective activities.

Let’s make clean ocean “Ensemble”.
