2 – What we do


    Assess the experience and insight of active sports organisations on creating and implementing an educational methodology and an awareness campaign towards ocean and seas preservation.


    Develop educational and environmental awareness methodology at local level to foster ocean protection through sport.


    Measure the social and environmental impact of the program implemented to strengthen advocacy toward ocean protection.


The project started in January 2023, for three years. During this period, the project partners will be developing tools with the aim of educating young people about eco-responsible behaviour.

The OSES project will focus around four pilot interventions in four different countries – Portugal, France, Spain, Malta – to obtain concrete, measurable and identifiable results. Take a look at our schedule!
