The project: Blackwave Surf School

Stefano Bellotti

Blackwave Surf School is a sports association created by Stefano Bellotti, driven by his love of the sea and eagerness to raise awareness about the respect we all owe to the sea. 

Other than running courses of surfing, canoeing and kayaking, Blackwave organizes beach cleaning activities and teaches kids about the impact of waste in the sea. It also sells suits made from recycled plastic and distributed in reusable plastic bottles.

Stefano’s work is a great example of action within Goal 14 of the Agenda 2030, which is to “Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources”.
