Edumar - know to protect, promotes diversity of resources and activities for Ocean Literacy, with the concern to adapt them to the Portuguese reality. The project is directed to students from pre-school up to high school as well as educators. Together with the students, four didactic and cooperative games will be created. Two training courses, one for teachers and one for education assistants will be offered. Ocean science talks, environmental education actions and awareness through arts will be organized. The project co-creates these resources and activities in partnership with two schools, members of the Escola Azul network - Externato Cooperativo da Benedita and Colégio Valsassina. These pedagogical tools, will be disseminated to other educational communities, to promote behavioural change towards a civic relationship with the ocean .
