Schools Program 'Plastics Fora'

Guiding our children towards a future free of single-use plastics!

In all the workshops we have carried out so far, the children were absolutely fantastic, excited, and extremely interested in ways to help!

You can help them too to be the change by sponsoring our schools program; or if you are interested in having this program take place at your children's school, get in touch with us: join@cleanweave.org

In October 2018 Cleanwave launched its environmental education program "Plastics Fora" for public and private schools.

The implementation of these educational workshops is essential to create a change in society, since this younger generation is the first to grow up with the problem of plastics and will be responsible for finding solutions in the future. Their awareness is essential to change consumer habits and establish the foundations of a well-informed society.


Since the launch of the program, its implementation has been a success and we have already held 160 workshops in more than 70 educational centers, summer campuses and sailing schools, reaching more than 5,200 children and youth.
(March 2020).

The general objectives on which our workshops focus are:

  • To sensitize students to the importance of reducing the consumption of single-use plastics.
  • Involve students in environmental conservation projects.
  • Raise awareness of the importance of caring for the environment and reducing the consumption of single-use plastics.
  • Carry out actions that benefit the educational community and have a direct impact on the environmental education of students and their families.
  • Provide tools to empathize and act appropriately in our day to day.


„Plastics fora“ for infant and primary education:

Using a beautiful children's story, we have a three-part children's workshop that teaches children about plastic, its impact, and how children are the solution of the future.

The workshop includes: introduction to an open discussion followed by a storyteller „Frida and her friends preserving their island“. Then there will be an audiovisual projection that sets the stage for an interactive game, which stimulates the emotional and sensorial experience of plastic, its impact on the environment and for animals, and how each child can be responsible for their own actions. The workshop closes with the children reflecting and drawing a picture of what they have learned on some “paper bubbles”.
At the end of the workshop each child receives a gift story to share with siblings, parents and friends.
The duration of the workshop is about 60-90 minutes and it is recommended for a maximum of 28 students.


„Plastics fora“ for secondary education:

The objectives of the program are:

  • Raise awareness among young people on the islands of the need to get involved to help reduce single-use plastics.
  • Encourage activities that help young people realize that they can find solutions
  • Offer the possibility of participating in events and activities as volunteers
  • Train students to intervene in the search for solutions to environmental problems
  • Help students understand the problem of single-use plastics.


High school program activities include:

  • Presentation of our association.
  • Screening of the documentary Out of Plastic, 20 min version.
  • Creative workshop „To create a different world you must first imagine it“. In this workshop young people create a character who manages to carry out an idea to reduce plastics in the sea
