The Education Department of Ocean Space offers targeted courses in citizenship and sustainability, along with introductions to topics relating to oceanographic issues, culture and contemporary art.

The educational program seeks to engage and involve both the teaching community and students of all levels on issues concerning the pressing challenges facing the environment and society around the world, with the aim of establishing a new “ocean generation”.

One of the main objectives is to help foster the growth of future citizens with an awareness of the ocean’s importance to humanity, a vital resource that needs to be protected to safeguard the existence of all forms of life on planet Earth.

The Education Department has launched a long-term educational experience to give everyone a chance to be actively involved, and to make a serious contribution towards safeguarding our planet.
