One Ocean Foundation will assist and provide all educational materials regarding ocean literacy and marine ecosystem protection to all Italian FIV sailing schools, supporting the sharing of environmental knowledge beyond sailing. Instructors will be trained on how to use the materials and how to use the simple citizen science protocols that the Foundation has created for the students.
