Science and Ethics award


null Escola Mossèn Joan Batlle de Blanes per “Plàstics 0”

The aim of this project is to raise awareness about micro and mesoplastics in the marine environment and how they enter the food chain. The project carries out a general diagnosis of this problem on beaches in order to help find solutions. The idea here is to promote critical thinking and creativity among students and to show them how to respond to real challenges through the application of the scientific method.

Conducted annually by the school’s Year Five pupils since 2016, the aim of this project is to get students involved in sustainable consumption and the analysis of issues related to the use of plastic whilst fostering respect for the environment. The award money will go towards consolidating this project at the school and developing awareness campaigns for the general public.
