This initiative is of a purely civic, educational nature in line with the European SEA CHANGE project, our ocean our health, carried out with the contribution of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO, with the aim of shaping 'Ocean Literate' citizens.

The purpose is to raise awareness of citizens at cultural, environmental and scientific levels. A greater consciousness may induce behavioral changes and virtuous practices.

The day will include the screening of themed films and the presentation of the book by Franco Borgogno, "Un Mare di Plastica" (Plastic sea). His testimony will unveil the results of the analyses of samples collected in the Artic and open a public debate.
