Algalita aims to unite young people, nonprofits, and influencers across geographical boundaries by “gamifying” participation in local and global solutions to plastic pollution.
Students create a simple account on the Wayfinder Society online platform. Once logged in, participants (or Wayfinders) are encouraged to explore Waymarks, or action items. Wayfinder Society offers students a chance to earn incentives for accomplishing various goals set forth by the Wayfinder team. The project challenges young people to think beyond today’s short-term solutions and become immersed in learning that cultivates future thinking.
