By the new students of the BSc course Coastal and Marine Management at Van Hall Larenstein, University of Applied Sciences, I was asked to write a short column about my thesis that I did in the Caribbean. The flyers were printed and used for the open day at the university and attract students to study the bachelor's course that I have studied! How great!
My thesis was about the severity of solid waste on the coastal areas of St. Eustatius, part of the Dutch West Indies in the Caribbean. We reviewed the current waste management present on the island and we assessed how the waste is influencing the coastal areas of this beautiful island. At the end, our report can be used as a guideline for future reference how the local government could improve their waste management.
