Klima, the sustainable boat

This boat loves the planet because it does as little harm as possible, since it can be dismantled and rebuilt with the same material as many times as it wants, because it is made of recyclable materials.

It’s called Klima and it’s a boat for beginners in sailing made with recyclable resins and natural fibers. In addition, it has the same measurements as a traditional Optimist IOD 95 helmet.

This project aims to sensitize young sailors towards sustainability, it has been developed jointly with the Club de Vela Ballena Alegre and built in the Catalan shipyards Naaix.


Theater show
SalvaMars Cirkus

SalvaMars Cirkus is a theater show for all audiences that shows life at sea and its threats in a comical way, gestural theatre, imagination and surrealism. With a spectacular marine circus tent as scenery and accompanied, on the one hand, by an original soundtrack of classical music, a couple of clowns make us think in a fun way about the problems generated in the sea by plastics, industrialization and climate change.
