In response to an annual call for challenges, social agents propose real problems linked to plastic pollution of the ocean and coastline, which they identify in the form of a challenge. The students of the two universities form working teams for each challenge, and elaborate proposals and contributions to the challenges posed.
PROPOSED CHALLENGES FOR 2020-2021
How to transmit environmental awareness messages so that citizens take action?
Develop a pilot project for non-intrusive technological solutions for the collection of plastics in the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve.
Develop tools to identify new audiences and how to approach them so that they learn about our projects (Surfrider) and about caring for the oceans through talks, classroom sessions, digital events, social media campaigns, etc.
Identify new sectors beyond the hotel industry in which we have already worked to move forward with the initiative to reduce the plastic generated by the consumption of bottled water in very specific contexts.
Develop professional and personal perspectives by identifying and acquiring skills in the field of the blue economy through awareness-raising and citizen experimentation on the coast, with the school public (students and teaching staff) as a priority.
