A network to share the Calanques
Éducalanques is about:
- the dynamics of a network facilitated by the National Park, which brings together environmental educational organisations and institutional partners, to create an educational project in the Calanques National Park and unite new energies. Collective intelligence, cooperation and synergy are the key words of this partnership.
- the Calanques for all: the members of the Éducalanques network seek to make nature more accessible to all, by addressing young people in particular in the Aix-Marseille-Provence metropolis as well as the public in general.
- a toolbox: the Éducalanques network is creating educational resources, tools, excursions and events to pass on knowledge about the Calanques and to make people want to protect them.
These quality partnerships benefit from the approval of the French Ministry for Education and awaken young people to the landscapes and their history, to the secrets of the flora and fauna and the cultural treasures of the Calanques...
Éducalanques, 1st generation
In 2015, the Calanques National Park launched a call for ideas to local environmental education organisations to join energies to create an educational partnership in the Calanques.
Éducalanques, 2nd generation
Since 2018, the network has entered its second phase. A new call for ideas allowed it to widen the network and support 7 new projects until 2021.
