The project SEA MARVEL joins forces between organizations that, in Sicily and Malta, work to reduce knowledge gaps and promote timely, concrete and feasible actions, research and campaigns to aid nature protection for innovative sustainable development. The geographical position of these islands allows for strategic analyses pertinent to the understanding of Mediterranean risks and challenges caused by climatic and environmental changes. SEA MARVEL aims to raise awareness of the pressures facing our marine life and mitigate the effects of plastic pollution, declining populations of marine species, alien species invasion and climate change effects, in order to enhance biodiversity and protection in Natura 2000 sites. Through SEA MARVEL, challenges shall be set-up to stimulate the participation of the future generations and coastal communities towards the development of sustainable management plans, and will address in integrated way problems linked to marine litter, unknown species abundance and biodiversity resilience in the face of increasing marine human activities. SEA MARVEL is therefore supporting Ministries for Education and the Environment, schools in Malta and Gozo and citizens to scale-up their contribution to reduce the loss of biodiversity. Effective measures through innovative knowledge-based responsible citizenship, shall facilitate the progress in regional valorization and admiration of marine Natura 2000 sites
