Understand what you love, preserve what you understand

Our events and workshops aim at an accessible, positive and intergenerational sharing of knowledge, giving everyone the opportunity to better understand the Ocean, to discover the low-tech philosophy and to get interested in a more sustainable science!

In childhood, let us awaken to nature through the senses

When making life choices, let’s do it through science

At all times, let us engage our consciences
