Description of the event: 
With the objective of raising awareness towards a healthier lifestyle, ecological sustainability and having fun enjoying the Spanish weather, we organised the Eco Beach Games.

ESN members set up a table with food and music, as well as a volleyball court at El Sardinero beach in Santander. We used reusable plates, as well as organic cutlery, and tried to use as less plastic as we could. International students were encouraged to bring their own food and drinks with the condition of recycling everything. We tried to make that part easier for them carrying bags.

Other sports were available, such as football or 'palas cántabras' (a typical game from the region, similar to tennis).
