Offers for schools, institutes and further educational institutes

We pass on our knowledge - in a variety of ways

The real art lies much less in the knowledge of the principles than in the way they are applied.

Honoré de Balzac

"Microplastics" is a highly complex topic with many causes and many levers - actually far too complicated for school, not yet fully researched scientifically and yet a topic of the future and on everyone's lips. It is precisely these topics that belong in schools and institutes and this is where WASoMI comes in.

Schools and institutes are an ideal place to provide impetus for sustainable action. That's why we bring our expertise on microplastics and our commitment to environmental protection into the classrooms. We are convinced that together with teachers, lecturers, participants, and students we can achieve much more for Water without Microplastics (WASoMI).

The educational content is put together in such a way that it:

  • reduces complexity,
  • addresses problems in the context of solutions.

Our goal within the WASoMI education area is to create a teaching/learning environment where learning and teaching are independent of:  

  • place
  • time
  • space

and without coercion and performance pressure.

The search for answers to the question: When does an everyday helper become an environmental problem?

Our digital learning and experience world WASoMI (in German) provides insights into the diversity of the topic of plastic and microplastics in the environment in small microlearning units.

There are many ways to impart knowledge. We build bridges to more knowledge by focusing on microlearning and multidimensional knowledge transfer.

Microplastics and Textiles – a state description

One of the main sources of direct microplastic entry into the environment is through the wearing and washing of synthetic textiles. This accounts for approximately 35% of the microplastics entering the global marine environment every year, amounting to between 200,000 and 500,000 tonnes. There are multiple pathways and options to target the unintentional release of microplastics from textiles, from the design through to the use and disposal, that must be considered. The European Commission has identified the textile value chain as a key priority in the EU Circular Economy Action Plan and proposed key actions and measures that are set to be finalized by the end of this year. This blog will provide an overview of issues related to the synthetic textiles, the proposed pathways to target unintentional microplastic release, along with the associated challenges that must be addressed.

Understanding of water vs reality

Get up in the morning, drink a glass of tap water, make coffee or tea, take a quick shower, brush your teeth, do your laundry, cook and so on. We need water - for everything. Water is a fundamental and natural part of our lives. Without clean water, we cannot live, we cannot survive. But the image of crystal clear water is becoming clouded. More and more pollutants, more bad news. How should we deal with water as the basis of life in the future?
