The BioDesign Foundation is the sustainability partner of EUROSA


The European Sailing Federation (EUROSAF) and the BioDesign Foundation join forces for a collaboration project in Los Alcázares, Spain, aiming to contribute to the future of the next generations. The BioDesign Foundation, grounded in the principles of designer Luigi Colani and devoted to researching and implementing ecological solutions, becomes a sustainability partner of EUROSAF. Together, they will promote projects related to sailing and ecology, including sustainable and transformation plans. An example is The Custodians Plastic Race, an innovative format devised by the BioDesign Foundation for cleaning the planet from plastic. Through this collaboration, the project reaches Los Alcázares, demonstrating EUROSAF’s commitment to promoting sustainable practices during its sports events across Europe.

The Custodians Plastic Race

Each phase of The Custodians Plastic Race represents a race against time to rid the planet of plastic, marking significant progress in the global project of the BioDesign Foundation. Before the start of the 2024 Formula Kite European Championship in Los Alcázares, Spain, the BioDesign Foundation, along with EUROSAF and the local municipality, organized a cleaning operation. Over 150 people, mostly from a foundation working with migrants, participated in the initiative. This event preceded Spain’s National Cleaning Week, scheduled for autumn 2024, and Italy’s National Cleaning Week in June 2024, with the aim of expanding globally. Before the cleaning activity, intervention areas were carefully identified and studied using the CESP application (The Custodians Earth Solution Platform), enabling anyone to report critical cleaning points, turning problems into challenges to be addressed with concrete actions. Monitoring the intervention areas was crucial for creating a map of the places to be cleaned and organizing the involved teams, in collaboration with local institutions. Participants, for the first time engaged in such an environmental initiative, contributed by collecting approximately 4 tons of waste. This demonstrates significant willingness to collaborate, along with a strong desire for integration with local communities, embodying the spirit of “All together now”.
