The Tbilisi Definition of Environmental Education: 1977
EE is a learning process that increases people’s knowledge and awareness about the environment and its associated challenges, develops the necessary skills and expertise to address the challenges, and fosters attitudes, motivations, and commitments to make informed decisions and take responsible action.
1 / Exhibitions on local marine fauna
In the facilities of Fiskardo Divers dive center, we have created a small museum where we present to the public several protected marine species such as the Neptune grass (Posidonia oceanica), the Fan mussel (Pinna nobilis), the Loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta), the Monk seal (Monachus monachus) and several species of sharks.The aim of these exhibitions is to inform and educate visitors about emblematic species of the Mediterranean that can be encountered locally, and which are endangered.
2 / Education program in local schools
Through a presentation of the local marine ecosystem and certain species living there, our goal is to teach the children of the island the richness of their environment and the importance of preserving it.
3 / Information and public awareness program
Through exhibitions or presentations, we inform tourists and locals about the fragility of the marine environment and the threats to certain species. Our intention is to both educate and empower sea users about practices and habits that are more respectful of the environment and easy to set up individually.
4 / Underwater museum
In partnership with Fiskardo Divers, when the diving season starts, we set up an underwater museum where you can find several signs for the most representative marine species. Each sign has a drawing with an explicative text. In this way, when people go diving, they will learn about the marine life of the area.
