Mar Pedagógico

Sea Pedagogy

It is essential to consolidate the maritime culture among the Portuguese, particularly the youngest, eager to know and to experience. At this stage, we believe that schools should dialogue with cultural, social and economic partners, in order to build solid knowledge and personal experiences of the sea - this project aims to help create and maintain this dialogue.

The methodology is based on the idea that we all learn better when we are motivated, when we know the purpose of learning, and when we experience both intellectually and sensitively. Real situations very often allow a very intense and a very deep experience of learning. That is why we challenge schools to define their own way of appropriating real issues and integrating them into their own courses in a transdisciplinary dialogue.

The first edition was in Peniche between February and March 2012.

It has now been more editions in Peniche and Setúbal.
