bLueTIDE – Ocean Literacy Towards an Integrated and Dynamic Education

Abstract/Aim
The bLueTIDE operation will implement a set of ocean literacy initiatives that aim at raising awareness of students and teachers of elementary schools for marine and maritime issues, in particular the importance and threats of rocky shores in intertidal areas. The operation will be developed within Blue Schools, but also within non-Blue Schools interested in applying to the Blue School Programme from the Directorate General of Marine Policy (DGPM).
