About Marine Education Center

 

Marine education

The marine educational work at Marine Education Center wants to go beneath the surface. We believe that everybody - children, young and elderly, regardless of background and opportunity - have the right to get access to knowledge about the sea and become conscious about the sea. Through our educational work, we want to raise participants interest and involvement to the amazing environment which is hidden underneath the surface as well as experience how fun it is to learn outside. Our marine educational work is financed by, among others, Malmö stad. 

Marine development

We run projects within marine development that focus on sustainability and innovation. The results from these projects build knowledge and understanding, which is then channeled into the activities of marine education as well as promoting the progress of new concepts and projects.
