Our exhibit about marine plastics now at the CCVAlgarve


This exhibit appeals to the reduction, reuse and recycling of plastic. Dedicated to the problem of marine plastics in the Algarve, it is divided into two parts: "Plastics in sight" and "8 Families, 8 Footprints".

The students of Tomás Cabreira Secondary School, in Faro, were challenged to interpret, in an artistic way, the excessive consumption of plastic, which resulted in two collections of paintings called " Plastics in sight ". In "8 Families, 8 Footprints", around 250 children from the 1st Section of the National Body of Scouts of the Algarve collaborated in the production of artistic pieces in an event that took place on the Gambelas campus of the University of the Algarve. The pieces represent the consumption of 8 families, who live in Algarve, and aim to warn about the excessive consumption of plastic waste that characterizes current consumption patterns.

The pieces will be on exhibition between 19 November 2019 and 5 January 2020 at the Centro Ciência Viva do Algarve, in Faro. Don’t miss it!
