PRADA GROUP MAKING OF
Prada Re-Edition 1995
SEA BEYOND, promoted by the Prada Group and UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC), is an educational programme to raise awareness of sustainability and ocean preservation.
The project – which has been supported by a percentage of the proceeds from the sales of the Prada Re-Nylon collection – underscores the Prada Group's commitment to sustainable choices, in line with the United Nations 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Since its debut in 2019, the initiative has trained more than 600 international secondary school students and, in January 2021, was officially linked to the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.
The second edition of the project is composed of three main initiatives: a new educational module for students all over the world, the launch of the Kindergarten of the Lagoon - a programme of outdoor lessons for children in preschool - and an educational path specifically designed for the 13,000+ employees of the Prada Group.
1. SEA BEYOND 2021/22 EDUCATIONAL MODULE
Ten schools from Brazil, China, Italy, Mexico, Peru, Portugal, South Africa and United Kingdom joined the second edition of SEA BEYOND.
From last autumn to spring 2022, students took part in a cycle of lessons to learn more about the Ocean Decade for Sustainable Development and they experienced a virtual reality content dedicated to the project to discover Prada Group’s commitment towards the ocean. They also participated in an international contest, to freely interpret one of the ten Ocean Decade challenges.
“For this second edition, we felt the need to thank all the students with an event able to celebrate the commitment that they continue to show towards the SEA BEYOND project. The international Ocean Conference in Lisbon seemed to us the perfect frame to discuss together, once again, an issue that is very close to our hearts: protecting the sea and its resources.”
