The Young Person’s Guide to the Mediterranean Action Plan and the Barcelona Convention

The Mediterranean Action Plan of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP/MAP) has released the “Young Person’s Guide to the Mediterranean Action Plan and the Barcelona Convention” aimed at ocean literacy practitioners, educators and young readers aged 11-17.

The Guide offers a simplified introduction to the legal framework that UNEP/MAP and the Contracting Parties to the Barcelona Convention have established and gradually upgraded, covering a wide range of themes pertaining to the Mediterranean marine and coastal environment as well as sustainable development.

“Today’s youth are tomorrow’s citizens and leaders. An early assimilation and uptake of the UNEP/MAP – Barcelona Convention system are key to ensuring a sustainable and resilient future in the Mediterranean region. It is our hope that this product will spark interest in young, inquisitive minds,” said the UNEP/MAP Coordinator who supervised the Guide’s production by the UNEP/MAP Coordinating Unit’s communication team, with support from the MAP Components.

The Guide offers a gradual immersion into the UNEP/MAP-Barcelona Convention system, thus catering to a variety of learning expectations and cognitive levels. Read more
