Stopover plan

1 –Connect

the future fighters against plastic pollution (policymakers, companies, investors, and entrepreneurs)

2 – Demonstrate and improve

– onboard plastic recovery technologies using the waste collected on site. Plastics will be transformed into objects and materials that will be useful in the visited places. The anthropo-technological approach will allow adapting solutions in order to meet local needs and cultures. Non-recyclable waste will be turned into fuel to power the vessel’s engines.

– alternative solutions to disposable plastics

3 – Create

– a network of local ambassadors of waste recycling and reduction so that initiatives can sprout up around the world

– education and awareness-raising: at each stopover, an awareness campaign for the general public will be launched.
