We start the route of the EDUCAMARES project with the support of Fundación Biodiversidad
With the aim of raising awareness and highlighting the importance of marine Natura 2000 sites as a tool for conserving marine biodiversity, the EDUCAMARES project is launching an educational campaign in schools on the Spanish coast.
The educational campaign is structured as a route that will have its starting point at the Institut Baix Empordà in Palafrugell, Catalonia. The route will include the rest of the coastal territory with the aim of covering all 23 Spanish coastal provinces.
How will we do it?
The students of 2º and 4º of ESO and of 2º high school of this first education center will participate in the first of many talks-workshops in which we highlight the project LIFE IP INTEMARES, the marine biodiversity that finds in our seas and the importance of marine Natura 2000 sites in achieving its conservation. In order to complement the visits and to extend the project to the rest of the education centers that cannot directly participate, a series of educational dossiers have been developed, both for secondary and high school, with the aim of making easier the dissemination of this subject in class.
Finally, an awareness campaign called “Message in a Bottle” is also planned, and it aims to raise awareness of the marine environment and the Natura 2000 Network. This campaign will consist of carrying out a participatory action at a national level, in which through messages and challenges that will be transported in a bottle, it is intended to involve citizens in the conservation of the seas and oceans, improving the way society interacts with them.
The EDUCAMARES project has the support of the Fundación Biodiversidad of the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge.
