Thanks to the European funds from Probleu Schools, boys and girls from 5th and 6th grade at CEIP el Terreno had the opportunity to dive into a world of art and science to protect our ocean, contributing to Mission Ocean EU. This educational program which will take place in the Casal de Barri in el Terreno (Palma).

This project have been co-led by ARTPORT_mw and Positive LAB (Coordinator project in the Balearic Sea), with support from other local actors such as the Ona Futura Foundation, Associació de veïns Bellver d’El Terreno.

Its aim is to empower youth in the protection of corals and the ocean at large.

WE ARE OCEAN is a global interdisciplinary art program aimed at raising awareness about our interdependence with the ocean. This program is endorsed by UNESCO as part of the UN Ocean Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030) until 2030.


The  Mission of our program  WE ARE OCEAN Mar Balear is to discover, through art and science, the beauty of the corals in our sea and empower the youth of the territory of the Balearic Sea to become active actors in marine protection.


Educational workshops combining art & science: a unique immersion in the world of art and marine science through workshops co-directed by artist Miguel Sbastida and Anne-Marie Melster with the collaboration of marine science expert Sandra Mallol from IOE-CESIC.

Special Events: where young people present the co-created works and share their visions with community leaders.

Collaboration opportunities: we want to collaborate with educational institutions, non-profit organizations, companies, and other stakeholders interested in marine conservation to multiply the project in the Balearic Sea.
