With #70_partners implementing actions on the ocean for schools, and the #necessity of promoting the professional side of #Blue_EconomyClube Intercultural Europeu was invited to form a partnership with the Escola Azul program in Portugal. 

Escola Azul (www.escolaazul.pt) is a program from the Ministry of the Sea - Directorate-General for Sea Policy. This program was born with the objective to encourage Portuguese schools to work with relevant ocean issues which impact their communities and to strengthen the link between the sea sector and the education field. After two years of implementation, 128 Portuguese schools have already received the Blue School certification, corresponding to the involvement of around 16 500 students.
