CIIMAR is one of the partners of the “Blue School” project which aims to distinguish the Portuguese schools that regularly work on ocean topics and get them to have a consistent commitment in the education of ocean literate citizens.
A Blue School develops an educational project that promotes a better knowledge of the ocean and its influence on our lives, while not forgetting our own impact on the ocean. A Blue School is able to actively engage the school community in these themes, articulating all its activities and initiatives with the local community and the different players of the sea sector.
The “Blue School PT” project was created by the Directorate General for Maritime Policy (DGPM), with the support of Ciência Viva, with the goal of improving the level of ocean literacy among the Portuguese population. CIIMAR is also one of the entities that will support the analysis of the applicant schools and validate the decision of the Coordination Commission.
