The objective of you project will be to REDUCE THE USE of single-use plastic (including bioplastics). We are looking for creative solutions and ideas based on the four Rs:
IMPORTANT: Projects focused on recycling or clean-ups will NOT be considered. Instead, explore ways in which your project can help REDUCE the amount of single-use plastic that is produced by companies and/or used by consumers in our everyday lives.
We encourage you to consider the interest and talents of your team members, and think of creative ways of how you can apply them to develop an inspiring project!
MARINE SCIENCE EXPEDITIONS
Our judges will select up to 5 top projects for 2023
Expeditions are scheduled for July 2023
TWO MOST IMPACTFUL PROJECTS WILL BE INVITED ON-BOARD A MARINE SCIENCE EXPEDITION WEEK
THREE PROJECTS WILL BE INVITED TO JOIN A MARINE SCIENCE EXCURSION DAY
In addition, the classes of the five teams will be able to use an endowment of 500 euros from the Foundation to invest in an environmental activity, excursion or project.
If potential funders and/or investors find feasible ideas among the projects, students might be offered a possibility to develop their projects further.
