What is it all about?
Save the Med is inviting students to be part of a positive wave of change in the world of marine regeneration. This year the Changemakers Project will have three main parts to it.
1. The Changemakers Project
We invite students from Mallorca, aged 15 - 18, to form teams and develop ideas that can help reduce plastic consumption. By implementing their projects students will help ignite a wave of change in their communities, and in May they will submit their projects to Save the Med Foundation. Scroll down to find out more about the type of project we're looking for and download the informational leaflet to learn more and participate.
2. The Changemakers Exhibit
An event where all teams can come together! Students from all over the island will get together to present their projects to the public and discuss solutions to plastic pollution. Students will have a chance to view each other's projects, network, learn from each other, inspire and be inspired. Our team will view the projects and make a final decision before announcing the team which will join us for an expedition onboard the Toftevaag!
3. Changemakers At Sea
The five teams with the most impactful projects, evaluated by a panel of scientists and educators, will be announced during the Changemakers Exhibit.
The teams behind the top two project will be rewarded with an unforgettable expedition experience each during the summer. For one week, students will help our scientists study marine life and human activities at sea, all the while gaining knowledge and skills to become true Ocean Ambassadors when they return.
The remaining three teams will be rewarded with a one day expedition on the solar powered boat Stenella. In addition, the classes of the five teams will receive 500€ each to invest in an environmental project, activity or excursion.
