Regional Government raises school community's awareness for the importance of protecting the oceans

The Regional Director for Fisheries stated in Santa Cruz da Graciosa that climate change “can condition the abundance of fish” in the Azores Sea, “altering sea currents and the distribution of resources.” 

Luís Rodrigues spoke Tuesday to about a hundred and a half students and teachers at Graciosa Basic Education and Secondary School during the lecture on "Climate Change, Global Warming and the Future of Our Sea." On the occasion, he recalled that “the ocean is the largest temperature regulator on the planet and being is threatened by global warming.”

"We must be well aware of the influence of the ocean on us and of our influence on the ocean," he said, adding that "younger generations must be informed of the importance of ensuring the sustainability of the Azores Sea in the future.”

These lectures promoted by the Regional Directorate for Fisheries encompass an environmental and social responsibility aspect, seeking to “bring Azorean schools closer to the sea” with the presentation of themes related to climate change and marine litter.

 “We have been working with regional schools to raise the awareness of the school community for these issues,” Luís Rodrigues stressed, recalling, as example, the preparation of students for the "Youth Parliament" project, whose last edition was dedicated to the theme of climate change, global warming and the oceans.

As part of the education and awareness strategy implemented by the Regional Directorate for Fisheries, these lectures aim to raise the awareness among regional educational establishments for themes related to the oceans and the sustainability of their resources.
