We present a free app for mobile phones, with a digital itinerary about the Portuguese Maritime Discoveries. This itinerary includes different spaces of action within the city of Lisbon: monuments, historical places, museums associated with the maritime discoveries (an aquarium, a planetarium, the museum of the Orient) and the exchange of cultures. With this project we intend to promote not only the Portuguese maritime identity, but also the connection with and respect of the sea to every citizen (Ocean Literacy principles 5 and 6). To achieve these goals, we created a set of “exploration stations” related to the following dimensions:
These itineraries are adapted to school children (10 to 12 years) and can be explored in school or in family contexts.
The project (PT02_2ºRPS_0017) was funded by EEA-Grants (Direção-Geral de Política do Mar).
