Ver para Querer is a project whose main objective is to raise awareness and knowledge about marine and coastal issues. It aims to contribute to the knowledge of the Ocean and raise awareness of the duty to conserve Natural Heritage, through behavioural change, as well as to promote the scientific and technological culture and increase Ocean literacy.

This project intends to encourage citizens involvement in the themes of the Sea, in order to promote a culture of respect for the Ocean and boost the construction of a bluer society. Thus, Ver para Querer is based on three lines of action involving the following themes: The Sea as a resource; The Sea as heritage / memory; The Sea as pleasure / entertainment.
