Our actions

This year we bring a vibrant series of events to 8 different European countries. Each station consists of an exhibition with artistic interventions added by inspirational insights and success stories from thought-leaders and change drivers. A co-creation workshop in hackathon-style unites the diverse perspectives and identifies promising entrepreneurial opportunities. This way the Universal Sea enables the development and acceleration of solutions against the plastic epidemic.
