The Scuola di Robotica association has set itself some worthy targets, from promoting a circular economy and fostering virtuous cycles to protecting our seas. It aims to do this by harnessing 3D printing technology to give litter left behind by fishermen and bathers a new life in a project called The Sea in 3D, funded by the Costa Crociere Foundation which has made safeguarding the environment its mission.
Our oceans are becoming landfills. Instead of driving the economy, goods produced for profit are clogging up beaches and seas. As one of the fastest growing threats to marine and human health, marine debris needs to be tackled…now.
Liguria’s rich and biodiverse coastline is under threat from a legacy of litter. It is a crisis that is dangerous for wildlife, hazardous for humans and a risk for coastal economies. Our mission is to work together with OLPA to turn the tide on marine debris.
