Academia COOL

The Academia COOL was born from the needs identified by organisations within the COOL network, which are dedicated to the protection and conservation of the ocean.

The new ongoing training initiative aims to contribute to the growth of these organisations by reinforcing their knowledge in key areas fundamental for their development as grassroot organisations. Consequently, the initiative contributes to a stronger and more enlightened activism in defense of the ocean.

Organised by Oceano Azul Foundation, the first training session took place on November 26, 2022, with the participation of almost 70 organisations from all over the country, under the theme “How to effectively communicate?”, a fundamental tool for taking the ocean’s message further.

Throughout the day, the organisations attended talks and participated in workshops on design, branding, media and public relations, content creation (video and image), and social media strategies.
