WHAT IS IT?
Escola Azul - Blue School is an educational programme of the Portuguese Ministry of the Sea. Its main goal is to improve the level of Ocean Literacy in Portugal.
This programme intends to distinguish and guide the Portuguese schools that work on Ocean Literacy. It creates an Ocean Literacy community, bringing together schools, the sea sector, municipalities and other entities with an active role in marine education.
Blue School encourages schools to explore Ocean issues through structured and interdisciplinary strategies, aiming for a social impact, whether with the participation of different partners or through the involvement of local communities.
The Blue School programme relies on partnerships with a great variety of entities connected to the sea, who provide multidisciplinary marine education actions directed at Blue Schools.
