TRANSFORMING SEAS OF PLASTIC INTO CLEAN SEAS
The objective is to promote social transformations from the formal sphere, increasing knowledge about the impact of the pollution of our seas and motivating an active participation so that the educational community creates initiatives from the classrooms with an impact on their community.
The project contemplates a high component of creativity in the development of materials and methodologies, innovations such as the creation of jewelry from plastics collected on beaches or creating a podcast together with the students. Seeks to create Good Practices and networking.
It is developed with three educational entities in Cantabria: the Atalaya Santander school, the CEIP Marina de Cudeyo and the Roberto Orallo School of Art.
From Transformando Futuros grew Expedition SEA-E, a project that acts against the current plastic pollution situation of our seas and oceans. SEA-E expedition is a zero waste sailing trip, which has left Spain, with the objective to know how things work in different parts of the world, clean the beaches where the expedition arrives, as well as discover the work of other people, communities and organizations. SEA-E works with 4 Rs for the sea: Collect, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
It consists of: Collecting all the plastic they can, Reduce or eliminate single-use plastic on board the sailboat, Reuse packaging in a creative way, and Recycle finally in their proper containers.
