With the Ocean College, we operate a research sailboat to train young adults to become certified STOP! Plastic Academy coaches. 

The Ocean College will sail across the Atlantic for 6 months. The 34 students of age 15-17 will learn to sail the boat and to do everything else by themselves! They'll also sample for microplastics for the whole 6 months. STOP! Micro Waste will train the students to be plastic experts so that they will be able to raise awareness even long after they've completed this amazing adventure!

They are trained in fact based reflected knowledge about plastics, design thinking, presentation and communication tools. All students will have the ability to pass everything they have learned on to other children, who are then able to build their own STOP! Station.
