Milan and Qingdao, 12 October 2023 – SEA BEYOND, the educational program developed by the Prada Group and IOC/UNESCO, is bringing the “Ocean&Climate Village” travelling exhibition beyond its national borders to China. The coastal city of Qingdao, home to prestigious marine research centers, is hosting the temporary exhibition on October 14 and 15, on the 81st and 82nd floors of the Qingdao Haitian Center.
This new edition of the project, established in 2021 as part of the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021 - 2030), is curated by IOC/UNESCO and UNESCO China and invites us to explore the link between the ocean and climate, with the goal of disseminating the principles of ocean literacy among the new generations. The initiative is actually aimed at children and young people, students from elementary to high-school.
SEA BEYOND has also chosen the UCCA Foundation for Art and Education, which promotes the dissemination of culture through artistic educational programs for children, as a partner for the project. UCCA helped to plan workshops through which the young visitors can learn and find out about the sea and its state of health in a dialog between creativity and science.
