Fins into the Water Library

What is it about?

The Mediterranean Sea is one of the tourist hot spots in the world that is facing several environmental challenges. Due to the fact that more than 400 million people visit the region annually, it puts additional pressure on the already fragile resources and environment. Nevertheless, visitors of the Mediterranean region can spend their holidays in a more sustainable way while sectors and businesses also have to take part to make their operations as green and blue as possible. As everything starts with education, knowledge transfer is crucial where the project puts water-sport & leisure centres to the heart of the actions.

This is what brings together 7 organizations together from Ecomarine Malta, Malta; Hellenic Centre for Marine Research, Greece; EMSEA, Belgium; University of Zadar, Croatia; Envjoy Nature and Peix al Plat, Spain; and Bikini Diving, Italy where the leading organization is Clean Boating from Mallorca.

Building on the Mediterranean Sea Literacy principles, the project partners developed:



Library                          Brochures                          Map                        Visuals



These are engaging, creative and informative tools & resources that enable the target groups to learn about ocean literacy principles tailor-made for the Med, while we highly encourage them to disseminate this knowledge among their clients by using these resources in their daily operations.

Project partners also organized local & regional events, to enhance the sea literacy principles with different activities. Check out our social media sites, if you would like to learn more about the past events and discover if there are upcoming ones in your area!
