Eco-Escolas commit to develop a set of actions and activities that must involve the educational community and the surrounding community and receive information and various resources: methodology, training, teaching materials, support and framework for all the work carried out.
Escola Azul is an educational program, from the Ministry of Maritime Affairs, whose mission is to promote Ocean Literacy in the school community and create more responsible and participatory generations that contribute to the sustainability of the Ocean.
This program distinguishes and guides schools that work on themes related to the sea, creating an Ocean Literacy community that brings together schools, the sea sector, boroughs, universities and other entities with an active role in marine education. The aim is to encourage schools to work with the Ocean in a structured, interdisciplinary, and vertical way, without being restricted to the classroom setting, and with a social impact, either through the involvement of local communities or through the participation of different partners. The Escola Azul program also integrates multidisciplinary marine education actions in a diversified network of partners aimed at the Escolas Azuis.
Forest School aims at the child´s full development, providing a place for practical experimentation for children to deepen skills and abilities such as: confidence, creativity, risk management and autonomy.

It carries out annual programs in school, which integrate well-being routines and creative workshops with a view to develop children´s creative potential. In these workshops, students are invited to work on creative group projects with the aim of solving real challenges. The children are at the center of learning and their healthy development lies above all in their ability to be happy and to promote the common good in the community in which they belong.
