Worldrise has launched the project of seagrass restoration “Posidonia” in Sardinia (Italy) in collaboration with the startup zeroCO2. Based on a nature-positive approach, it aims to restore an area of 100 m2 of Posidonia oceanica, while also raising awareness with educational activities in local schools, in collaboration with the non-profit EarthEcho, founded by Philippe Cousteau Jr., environmentalist and grandson of Jacques Cousteau. The project welcomes the support of the next generation of future custodians of the sea: everyone can volunteer during the plantation of Posidonia, participate in water quality testing and awareness raising activities!

Feedbacks, empathy, empowerment and experimentation are only some of the fundamental tools that we can all use to make the difference for the Planet.

WORLDRISE – 30×30 Italia

30×30 Italia is Worldrise’s Campaign which aims to protect 30% of our seas by 2030 through the establishment and effective management of Marine Protected Areas (MPA). The ocean provides 50% of the worlds oxygen and absorbs approximately 25% of excess CO2. When it comes to winning the fight against climate change the ocean is our best ally. The growth of MPA’s and increasing essential education and awareness will go a long way towards protecting this essential ecosystem.
