The Minister of Sea, Ricardo Serrão Santos, issued the new Blue School challenge for the school year 2020/21!

Our Ocean in 2030” is directed at Blue Schools and students of all ages, engaging them in the UN Ocean Decade. There were two ways to participate:

🗣️ Debates – Commitments for Our Ocean in 2030
Each school promotes debates among the students to identify the 10 commitments of the school for a better Ocean in 2030. The school submits its list and their students take part in regional and national debates to select the 10 Blue School commitments for the Decade. 
    🗓️ Deadline: 31 march 2021

Ilustrations – How Do I Want the Ocean in 2030?
How do we want the Ocean to be in 2030? Students create an image (drawing, painting, digital, etc.) that answers this question, along with a sentence or slogan.
