Kyoto, Japan — NOWPAP representatives attended the Marine Litter Summit on 25-26 August 2012 in Kameoka city of Kyoto Prefecture, Japan where participants from environmental NGOs, central and local governments discussed ways of dealing with marine litter in Japan and in the region.

The summit was organized by the Japan Environmental Action Network (JEAN) along with a river bank cleanup sponsored by local government, industry and citizen groups. The river bank cleanup campaign was organized the day before the Summit at Hozugawa River, in which 100 people participated.

Contributing to the success of the Summit, NOWPAP has participated in this annual event as an official supporter since 2005.
