Plastic Arts for the Ocean
The “Arts en plastiques pour l’Océan” contest invites students to create works of art from used plastic materials. Open to all classes from cycle 1 to 4, it raises students’ awareness of plastic pollution, which endangers all forms of marine animal and plant life, with serious consequences for human societies. The contest also provides an opportunity for students to discover the issues related to marine sustainable development.
Each winning class receives a financial grant enabling the students and educational teams involved to continue developing their project, linked to the fight against marine pollution.
The competition is part of the partnership agreement between the Fondation de la Mer and the French Ministry of Education.
