Capacitar para o Mar – ocean literacy project

Abstract/Aim
The project “Capacitar para o Mar – ocean literacy project” intends to promote ocean literacy, empower youth generations, and awake new vocations to the sea, contributing in the medium term to increase skills towards several maritime economic activities. Several programs in this context will be developed, namely an open day with field trips, lectures and laboratory activities about marine resources, Marine Olympics, environmental volunteer programs at Berlengas, a summer academy- Semana Tanto Mar, and an entrepreneurship competition where young people can develop entrepreneurial projects involving sea resources.
