The Mediterranean quest ​TO "FIND THE BLUE"

The Mediterranean quest ​


One planet, One Ocean

Arts, Science and History have been mesmerized by our Ocean, its wonderful creatures and its hidden storiesMaintaining a healthy and clean Ocean has become one of the most important conditions of mankind’s existence as we depend on its resources and its ecosystems for survival. Today, the global community, scientists and decision makers have realized the risks facing our Ocean and the need to protect its valuable resources, so they are collaborating to devise top-down solutions for these various challenges!  


Education and Ocean Literacy

In Europe, several initiatives – such as the “EU Blue Schools Network” developed by the EU4Ocean coalition –  have been working to increase knowledge on the marine ecosystems and to raise awareness on the importance of preserving the ocean. Ocean Literacy has slowly progressed to reach its various sea basinsschools have joined the movement, and educators have been more and more involved, using the Ocean as a teaching tool.  

The Mediterranean Blue Schools project

The Mediterranean Sea’s unique physical and geographic features is threatened by increased human pressure on its marine resources and fragile coastal ecosystems. What is the role of educators and their pupils in protecting thMediterranean sea basin and how can they be involved in the process? This is what the Blue Schools Med project is all about. Read more about the project and stay tuned for its many outputs throughout the next couple of years! 







BlueSchoolsMed’s first physical teachers’ training!

In November and December 2021, the BlueSMed project partners organised four – in person – teachers trainings, one in each of the partner countries to lay the ground for the upcoming Blue projects (Greece, Italy, Malta and France). Those meetings were a space for teachers to exchange their experience, discuss the challenges they have been facing, explore various evaluation methods but also start working and developing their ideas for the “Blue challenges”.

BlueSchoolsMed partners’ first on site meeting!

In parallel to the EU4OCEAN Med Sea Basin event that took place last September 24-27, the Blue Schools Med project undertook two important activities, located in Venice, Italy. The first was a transnational project meeting, joining together for the first time the 10 project partners in person after almost a year of working together virtually, and the other was a hybrid teachers’ training event!
