When Oke Carstensen and Tobias Weber-Andersen founded GreenKayak in 2017 in Copenhagen, they wanted to contribute to the cleaning of waterways through a fun activity. Through the free rental of a kayak, nearly 80 tons of waste have been collected by more than 15,000 people to date. To encourage the preservation of ecosystems, the entrepreneurs have bet on the playful and immersive involvement of participants. From this experience, Oke Carstensen encourages young people to get involved “to protect the environment, we need long-term and continuous actions, beyond political mandates.”
Through this Campus, young people were able to interact with inspiring project owners involved in environmental action. We hope that this exchange will encourage a reflection on citizen projects in their respective schools and local ecosystems.
This event was produced with the support of Klorane Botanical Foundation and C6 Conseil.
