We aim to improve society’s relationship with the ocean, promoting sustainable use of the marine environment.

With four basic lines of action, which include different projects, we seek to develop and implement action plans to promote awareness and conservation to protect marine life.

Marine biodiversity and conservation

Marine biodiversity or marine biological diversity is the terminology that defines the huge biodiversity of life which includes any ecosystem, microscopic and macroscopic specie and population inhabitin marine environment. 

In SUBMON we develop many projects for marine biodiversity conservation and our aim is to prevent the loss of biological diversity in Mediterranean areas and the Ocean in general.

Improvement and mitigation of impact of marine ecosystems

SUBMON has projects to measure and mitigate the impact of human activity on marine ecosystems. These impacts are the result of different activities, such as boat mooring, pollution from dumping urban waste water, fishing and coastal construction, and many more.

SUBMON carries out environmental impact assessments, action plans and campaigns, makes legal improvements and draws up technical documents to improve the marine ecosystem’s situation.


Environmental education and training workshops

Throughout education and a participatory approach, we aim that citizens who participate in our projects and campaigns develop critical thinking skills, environmental awareness and get empowered.

All of SUBMON’s educational projects are designed and implemented with one main goal: Creating a real, respectful, lifelong change in the relationship between the different audiences and the Ocean.


Promoting sustainable activities for marine environment

The conservation of marine ecosystems has become a priority not only for scientists but also for citizens and political leaders.

SUBMON conducts national and international events, involving different interested players in multi-sectorial debate spaces. The purpose is to develop interdisciplinary solutions that help to protect and raise awareness of different marine species.
