As Club Med’s birthplace, protecting the Mediterranean Sea has always been important to the Club Med Foundation. Nowadays, it supports projects willing to protect it, such as Expedition MED’s scientific research programme about Mediterranean Sea’s pollution by plastic waste.
About Expedition MED
Expedition MED is the very first NGO which had started a citizen scientific research programme studying Mediterranean Sea’s pollution by plastic waste. Since 2009, its expeditions revealed that nearly 250 billion of bits of plastic waste are floating in the area.

With the Club Med Foundation
The Club Med Foundation financially supports Expedition MED’s scientific missions in the Mediterranean Sea.
It also offers to all Club Med G.Os to dedicate a week of their holidays to voluntarily participate to the scientific research missions with Expedition MED and live a unique experience on board! We call this kind of holidays “solidarity leave”. According to the diverse feedbacks on the everyday life shared on the boat, the participation to the scientific protocols, the knowledge shared about marine environment and its problematics are experienced with great interest by all G.Os.
Use of the collected funds
The collected funds will help to finance Expedition MED’s scientific missions organised each year in the Mediterranean Sea.
