Purpose and Values
SEA BEYOND is an educational program promoted by the Prada Group and UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC), to raise awareness on sustainability and ocean preservation.
From 2023, SEA BEYOND extended its scope beyond education with two new areas of focus: support for scientific research dissemination and humanitarian projects, both dedicated to projects related to the ocean.
As of July 2023, 1% of Prada Re-Nylon Collection proceeds supports SEA BEYOND.
In November 2023, Lorenzo Bertelli, Prada S.p.A. Executive Director & Prada Group Head of Corporate Social Responsibility, became "Patron of the Ocean Decade Alliance" in recognition of his commitment to protecting the ocean.
Find out all the initiatives that have taken place from 2019 to today.
The third edition of the SEA BEYOND educational module is about to kick off – this year dedicated to the delicate balance between Ocean and Climate.
From January to June 2024, 34,385 students from 184 schools across 56 countries will take part a training course and creative contest on this theme.
Prada Group has announced its first humanitarian project within SEA BEYOND. In partnership with the international non-profit organisation Bibliothèques Sans Frontières, the initiative facilitates access to education, culture and information for citizens in vulnerable communities through the Ideas Box, a mobile multimedia centre dedicated to ocean protection.

Activities for the Group’s employees on a global scale, to teach the principles of ocean literacy and to encourage a more active role in its protection.
