Project Description

O Nosso Mar workshop was hosted by Atelier Gatafunhos of Funchal (Madeira) and organised in collaboration with Azul Diving Center. Thanks to the knowledge and experience of Ester and Giulia, two young and energetic marine biologists, the kids participated to the collective mapping of the Madeira island marine ecosystem. They learnt about local species as plants and animals, but also about pollution causes and threats. The process included identifying problems and collecting ideas to preserve the ecosystem; working in team to generate some physical prototypes and presenting their solutions to the parents.
