A toolkit to value our planet
As a Foundation, we develop educational exhibitions, events, participation in fairs, co-design of courses, workshops, plus services for schools and cientists.
We evaluate all formats as a way of sharing knowledge of our underwater heritage. With a three pronged toolkit (science, education y nautical activities), we hope to share a global vision of what it means to live together between ecosystems.
Feel free to reach out and tell us your needs and let’s conceive together a Ocean Literacy activity that works for you!
Despite it’s importance, plankton remains being not very well known among the population.
With this in mind, CIDEMAR Foundation created “Microcosmos oceánico: Descubriendo los misterios del plancton” (Oceanic Microcosm: Discovering the misteries of plankton), a travelling educational exhibition which shows the key rol of this organism in the marine food web.
This budget contemplates 14 instances of this activity, reaching more than 3000 people. This budged funds a team of three professionals, plus a program manager.
(Chilean Beach Alliance)
The Alianza Playera de Chile (APCL) coordinates and unifies the effort of several key actors (authorities, centers and clubs of nautical activities, businesses, NGOs and volunteers) for the organization of shore cleaning events all over the country, accompanied by educational activities that contribute to the public’s awareness of our daily habits.
This budget contemplates three instances of this multi-territorial activity. It funds a team of two professionals tasked with the management of the member of this national initiative.
Litoral Chileno (Chilean Coastline) is a photographic exhibition and an audiovisual online resource that aims to spread knowledge about the richness of the chilean coastline and the biodiversity that inhabits it.
Exploring it you will be able to visualize the effects of Climate Change and human-made pollution in our ecosystems.
This budget takes into account 7 presentations to a crowd of 2.000 people. It finances a team of three professionales, plus a program manager.
Funded partially by the Competitive Funds Program Mi UV of the University of Valparaíso.
The Foundation develops interventions in the hope of spreading knowledge about the ocean to audiences of all ages.
The University Outreach program targets different fields of study, aiming to develop a multidisciplinary network of students and professionals committed with our aquatic environment, and providing them alternatives to get involved in its protection, whether it is as an intern or acting as a CIDEMAR Ambassador.
Working closely with the scientific community, CIDEMAR Foundation strives to contribute to the spreading of new knowledge about the aquatic environments produced both in Chile and the world.
You can also help in the spread of knowledge!
Our life force is the commitment of many, involve yourself in the change and educate your community about our shared aquatic heritage.
