The PANACHE project aimed at networking Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in the Channel area, in order to determine common assessment and management methods, taking into consideration the ecological coherence of those cross-border marine areas. The project also provides for the development of joint strategies for protecting birds in those coastal areas.
Achievements: Involve students and schools in scientific projects, this was one of the challenges taken up by the PANACHE project, which developed effective methods to raise awareness among young people. As part of the PANACHE project, an educational and fun video game for all audiences, known as a “serious game”, was developed in order to raise awareness of the marine environment among young people and adults (collecting waste on beaches, identifying species, etc.).
