Protecting and caring for our planet is not an option, it is a need that must be led by young spirits determined to make a change. At FOOTDISTRICT we are taking a step forward driving change through a series of outdoor experiences that seek to regenerate our relationship with natural spaces.Back to FOOTDISTRICT
The first phase of the Terra Project took place in the surroundings of Barcelona’s urban beach. A series of outdoor activities and talks by experts and sea lovers in which we could learn firsthand of the importance of the oceans and the imperative need for the care and conservation of marine fauna and flora.Go to PHASE I
Naturally, the first stage of Terra Project took place in the ocean. As an indispensable medium for the existence of life on the planet, the seas and oceans surrounding our lands must be the priority when establishing any action that involves the care and conservation of our environment.
From paddle surfing to kayaking, snorkeling, swimming in the open sea or scuba diving, all the Outdoor Activities and Ocean Talks in this first phase of the project were focused on learning about, deepening and strengthening the link with the marine environment and being part of the change.
During the first phase of Terra Project, in addition to enjoying the ocean and learning more about its importance in each one of the outdoor activities, we committed ourselves to its care by collecting garbage and waste.
The first Terra Project outdoor activity consisted of a guided kayak tour with Ocean52 ambassador and expert kayaker Rai Puig. A tour along the coast of Barcelona sharing knowledge and collecting waste, perfect to kick off the project.
On this occasion, Olympic sailor Alfredo Vázquez guided us on a day of sailing along the Barcelona coastline, learning and collecting any debris that stained the oceanic beauty.
With the only help of their paddle surfboards, participants and organization were responsible for cleaning up all the waste and debris found both on the surface of the water and in the pier area. A 100% sustainable initiative to deepen the need to take care of our environment.
After a cleanup along La Barceloneta beach and its surroundings, we dive into the Mediterranean Sea coast to continue our work and discover the secrets of the waters surrounding our cities. A complete diving experience to strengthen ties with the sea and reflect on its importance.
For our fifth outdoor experience we went into the shallowest waters of La Barceloneta beach with a professional surfer and Ocean52 ambassador, Kepa Acero. There we discover what we see at first glance of one of the busiest beaches in Europe.
This time we moved away from the urban coast to enjoy a day of wild kayaking with Rai Pug in Llançà, 15 km south of the French coast. An incredible day of coastal geology in which we also had time to stop and pick up waste in the hills behind the port of Sant Joan.
On the last day of summer 2021, Terra Project booth at the Club Natació de Barcelona was the meeting point for a group of young people who came to enjoy an afternoon of swimming with the triple open water champion and Ocean52 ambassador Míquel Sunyer.
To finish the last outdoor experience of the first phase of Terra Project, we invited a very special group of participants formed by regulars and lovers of FOOTDISTRICT and Nike ACG to know in situ the ecological importance of the posidonia meadows that surround the coast in Vellmarí, Formentera.
