2020 - 2021
SEA BEYOND, promoted by the Prada Group and UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC), is an educational programme for secondary schools to raise awareness on sustainability and ocean’s preservation.
The project – which has been supported by a percentage of the proceeds from the sales of the Prada Re-Nylon collection, the regenerated nylon product line launched by Prada in 2019 - underscores the Prada Group's commitment to sustainable choices and the ocean impact on our future, in line with the United Nations 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
On March 26th, during the SEA BEYOND digital award ceremony, Prada and UNESCO’s IOC announced the winning awareness campaign developed by international secondary schools’ students dedicated to ocean preservation.
The contest winner is the Portuguese school Agrupamento de Escolas de Vialonga in Vialonga (Lisbon), with the short cartoon “Redes circulares: Cerco ao plástico no mar” (“Circular nets: a sea of plastic”), showing the catastrophic plastic pollution that endangers the ocean ecosystems and how to recollect plastic waste for upcycling opportunities.
