The Ilha da Culatra (Culatra Island) is a large sand bar island that is located south of the resort towns of Olhão and Faro. The island is part of the Ria Formosa national park and this has limited development, there are no paved roads on Culatra and the only method to reach the island is by ferry.
RTV-AECO launched the Youth Network in 2017 in response to overwhelming interest across the country from young people that wished to become more involved with the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve.
This program focuses on the development of environmental awareness projects – at their schools, campuses or local communities. These projects range from beach clean ups to plastic free campus to greening your campus. Project-based learning helps teaches young people to:
- Develop awareness of issues affecting our waterways & coastlines;
- Construct collaborative solutions on what they learn;
- Communication skills that move others to action; and
- Most importantly, be able to make a difference for something their interests and passions.
