Worldrise, in collaboration with “Il Politecnico Argonauti”, organised in Olbia (SS), Sardinia, “Cinema for the Sea”, a cycle of video projections to promote the conservation of 30% of the sea by 2030. This consisted of 6 meetings, open to the public and free to participate in, inviting them to dive into the Blue Planet through cinema together with some special guests, discovering the wonders and fragility of the sea. The first two meetings, focused on nature, local culture and valorisation of the territory, were a success, with many enthusiastic participants. The events will continue every Thursday until April 26th, concluding with a special evening entirely dedicated to the youngest.

Worldrise‘s commitment to marine conservation extends to the field of art as well. Thanks to a collaboration with the Italian photographer Filipe Casiraghi, the non-profit organization adds a new artwork to the Ars Maris charity art exhibition, which amplifies the voice of the ocean. “The Last Wave” is a stunning photograph, created with a sustainable process and printed only on request. It shows our profound relationship with the sea, on a journey of discovery and respect towards the Blue Planet.

Street artwork, entitled "Under the Sea"

Worldrise Onlus, thanks to the precious support of the artist Pongo 3D and Gucci, brought the sea to Milan, creating a 3D smog-absorbing mural that represents plastic pollution in the sea, going beyond simple visual perception. The street artwork, entitled “Under the Sea”, can be observed without glasses with 3D filters or with the help of red and blue lenses to immerse yourself totally in its waves. Together with the 28 murals already created by Worldrise as part of the Worldrise Walls project, “Under the Sea” contributes to absorbing as much city smog as 628 square meters of forest would do.
