Exhibition in Wolin

In Germany and Europe, numerous initiatives have been launched recently to counteract the problem of marine waste, to develop solutions and to raise awareness among the population. In our touring exhibition, an artistic exploration of the topic of marine pollution promotes community discourse. The European Coastal Union (EUCC-D) supports The Universal Sea as a scientific partner and developed the travelling exhibition “Mensch ∙ Müll ∙ Meer” (Human ∙ Waste ∙ Sea). The exhibition uses an oil-barrel-based design concept to show the viewer the origin of marine waste. Furthermore, its impacts on the sea and coast are shown. In particular, the waste found at clean up events show how massive the problem is.

For the little ones
At the exhibition in Sylt there will also be exciting things to discover for our little visitors. Illustrator Christoph Tillmann (“Löwenzahn”) has umgesed a banner – where Lup, Lars and the lighthouse take everyone on a journey where you can see how rubbish gets into the sea. In addition, the German winning films of a europe-wide video competition will be shown. Children and grown-ups show their self-made video contributions on how to overcome the problems of the increasing pollution of the oceans.
