AN INITIATION TO THE AQUATIC WORLD
AND CONNECTION WITH THE OCEAN
We promote ocean literacy in young people through educational aquatic experiences and human development tools.
1st edition – 2020/2021 – Sesimbra, Portugal
‘Atlantis Program’ was inspired by the ‘Açores Atlantis 2019’ Expedition created by Oceans and Flow and evolved into an educational program for young people in their schools and communities.
It promotes ocean literacy through the combination of freediving, ecological education and human development as a method to awake and root an environmental responsibility and improve personal capabilities.
‘An ocean adventure in Arrábida Natural Park, Portugal.’
Exploring dreams within their local community, students set out to awaken and root environmental responsibility.
Involving the community.

Violeta and Cris
We are freedivers and as such we daily live the transformative power of a close relationship to the ocean. We share a passion for the ocean and the mission of awakening in the new generations a care and affection for marine life.
We hold different expertises in the area of human development, arts and aquatic movement that merge in a unique method of subaquatic education.
We have invited a multidisciplinary team of professionals to integrate the 1st edition of Program Altantis to act at different stages and to contribute with scientific, artistic, sports, educational and social and human development knowledge.
