The world's most extreme race is putting sustainability at its heart and is focusing on taking action to “Turn the Tide on Plastic” – the rapidly growing and critical problem of plastic pollution in the ocean, highlighted by the United Nations Clean Seas campaign. The Volvo Ocean Race supports this much-needed campaign and the UN's Sustainable Development Goal 14 (Life below water), through the Volvo Ocean Rate sustainability team, education programme and positive actions.
The programme will help you and your students (aged 6-12 years) discover the excitement of sailing through the Volvo Ocean Race, the importance of the ocean and how ocean plastic pollution is damaging our blue planet. It will also show you ways to combat ocean plastic pollution and how YOU and your students can make a difference by becoming Volvo Ocean Race Champions for the Sea!
