Educational resources to train the next generation of explorers.

Involving young people in finding solutions to stop plastic pollution

Plastic Odyssey offers free resources to introduce young people to finding solutions for a plastic-free ocean and to train the next generation of explorers.

In the face of the plastic crisis, we all have a role to play. But how can we motivate citizens, especially young people, to act in the face of a problem that seems overwhelming?

The Plastic Odyssey team offers fun and complementary mediation tools to school textbooks to approach the theme of plastic pollution through the prism of solutions and put young people in an explorer mindset. These tools, designed by the expedition team and education professionals, enable young people to develop their scientific knowledge, as well as their critical thinking and citizenship awareness.

Free resources for teachers and students
