– Raising citizens’ awareness of the need to reduce litter on beaches / sea coast – Alerting to the rubbish problems on the beach

Número de participantes



I’ve been surfing for two years and the feeling is incredible! The control of the waves, the contact with nature in its purest and wildest state.

Besides surfing I like to photograph nature with GoPro. I worry about the remains of fishing nets as well as the uncontrolled capture of octopuses and mussels.

At school, in one of the awareness sessions of Eco-Schools, we were told about the problem of marine litter. It made me wonder if my beach would be at risk, and I decided to explore. These photographs were taken on the beach where I usually go surfing and although they are real garbage sculptures, most of all they are rubbish on a beach. Later I returned to the beach and the sculptures had disappeared, they had been absorbed by the sea.



This man-environment relationship has a very high impact on the environment. The sea is mine, is yours, it belongs to EVERYONE! The solution to its conservation must be our priority, OUR WAVE!
