Strengthen sustainability competences in the field of fishery and aquaculture.

About the

Green to Blue Project

The Blue Economy is the European Union’s long-term strategy to support sustainable growth in the marine and maritime sector. Environmental sustainability as well as marine environmental awareness and education in the fisheries and aquaculture sector are important components for the long-term survival of the Blue Economy in the Mediterranean sea. In order to achieve blue growth in Europe, highly qualified and skilled professionals are needed.

The Green to Blue project improve the environmental management system and develop technical skills strongly centered on the sustainability of activities related to the sea, by providing an effective and functional training program to sector workers and sector stakeholders.

Priorities & Outcomes

The Green to Blue project allows the introduction of environmental technical skills in the fisheries and aquaculture sector, through the production and implementation of a flexible and adaptable training content for fishermen and fish farmers.

It aims to orient adults working in the maritime sector towards a sustainable use of marine resources, in particular through awareness of all the actors around the concept of “preservation of the sea”, to generate a new figure of “sentinel of the sea” of fisherman and fish farmer, and to generate a model of a strategic evolution of policies dedicated to the preservation of the seas to be replicated throughout Europe.
