PONTE DE COMANDO
DA OPERAÇÃO PLASTIC FREE WATERS DE IYFR
Os promotores do projeto Plastic Free Waters são os milhares de membros da International Yachting Fellowship of Rotarianos de 5 Continentes, apaixonados pela navegação em lagos, rios e mares de todo o planeta e preocupados com as condições das águas em que realizam suas Atividades. No ano passado, o IYFR formou uma Força-Tarefa combinada para combater a poluição causada por resíduos de plástico. É uma operação complexa que vê as três áreas da IYFR em ação sob a égide do Comodoro Internacional do IYFR, Robert Burns. Cada Área tem sua própria organização, mas o plano estratégico é único assim como a Coordenação da Operação PFW confiada ao PIC Sergio Santi.
A Ponte de Comando do Projeto é formada por seis Rotarianos, Membros ou Marinheiros como eles gostam de se chamar, do IYFR, constantemente auxiliados por uma Equipe composta por Cientistas, Técnicos, Químicos, Juristas, Industriais e Marinheiros especialistas. Suas experiências pessoais e profissionais são muito diferentes, mas todos estão muito preocupados com o tamanho e o perigo da poluição dos resíduos plásticos para as águas do planeta. Daí o desejo comum de contribuir para a transição para um mundo onde o uso do plástico seja contido de forma responsável e onde seus resíduos não constituam mais uma ameaça para toda a humanidade.
