Time Frame: 2005-Ongoing

Description:

The Monitoramento Mirim Costeiro project is a pioneering project on Social and Environmental Education that aims to transform children into “Guardians of the Oceans”. Children become researchers of the coast where they live, learning about the characteristics of this ecosystem, about the local culture and the socioeconomic activities exercised in their community. Our mission is to provide children with meaningful learning experiences that connect them with the marine-coastal environment in which they live, contributing to the formation of more aware, responsible, critical and proactive citizens.
