Our Blue Schools project is an education programme that aims to raise awareness about the problem of plastic pollution and to inspire the youth to protect what they most love: nature and the Ocean.
This innovative education programme is structured in three modules that are delivered during three consecutive weeks, with an optional fourth week with outdoor activities. The modules range from cool oceans, to unhealthy oceans (plastic pollution) or basics of recycling, and they are intended for Elementary Schools (grade 1-6).
As a part of our global effort to foster sustainable communities, we always encourage our Blue Schools to build a long lasting relationship with Plastic Oceans in order to bring more value to the children and to benefit from all our educational resources, so this three-weeks programme is just the beginning of our journey together.
Finally, our documentary Earth’s Ekko is also part of this programme as it is a great tool for educators and parents to engage, inspire and teach children. The film features Ekko, an ocean-dwelling animated character whose species is one of Earth’s oldest-living organisms. With his home being recently disrupted by a human-made material, plastic, he goes on an adventure with three young human friends to learn about the problem and solutions to protect Earth.
