National Geographic Ocean Plastic Innovation Challenge
National Geographic and Sky have recently-launched the Ocean Plastic Innovation Challenge, The Ocean Plastic Innovation Challenge asks problem solvers from around the globe to help tackle the world’s plastic waste crisis. The Challenge consists of three separate tracks:
- Design: To design solutions to improve food and beverage packaging and other top ocean-polluting plastics
- Circular Economy: To develop new business models or technology solutions to reduce or eliminate packaging waste
- Data Visualization: To represent a data set related to the global challenge of plastic waste as an original and compelling data visualization
Teams will compete for a share of $500,000 and select teams will be eligible for an opportunity for investment up to $1 million from Sky Ocean Ventures.
This toolkit enables partners to support outreach.
