We can contribute with our DAN Europe Training courses. These teach First Aid steps to care for an injured diver and interact with medical professionals. These courses help gain a better understanding of dive medicine and how to respond to a dive emergency. They all provide diving medical education using a language that can be easily understood by everybody. Furthermore, we could share our expertise gathered participating on MPA Engage Projects, such as • Citizen Science activities in Portofino MPA • Citizen Science activities in Tavolara Punta Coda Cavallo MPA Last but not least, we are running a DAN Europe Sustainable Tour in 2021. Driving 12,000 km in an electric vehicle, we will visit 15 European countries . Our intention is to promote sustainable practices such as sustainable mobility & the adoption of sustainable practices that not only have a positive impact on-land, but ultimately contribute to healthy oceans. Key decision makers working both with EU Green Deal, Blue Ocean Strategy and UN SDG goals will be visited. DAN Europe Team will interact with students from high schools and Universities during the tour. All data and expertise gathered during these five months on the road, can be shared with EU4Ocean platform.
