Bibliomer: raising awareness of major environmental themes among beach users
In collaboration with the Centre de Découverte du Monde Marin (Centre for Maritime Discovery), the Department of the Environment is organising a marine environment awareness-raising event for the general public. The event took place on Larvotto Beach on Tuesday 25 July and will return on Monday 7 August, between 4 pm and 7 pm.
“Bibliomer”, an entertaining mobile library, is travelling to the various beaches along the Côte d’Azur throughout the summer. Last year, it offered an opportunity, including for young children, to learn about the riches of the Mediterranean Sea, particularly in coastal areas.
This year, the emphasis is on fun. Activity leaders will be presenting workshops on fishing, observing cetaceans and managing waste. Activity books, reading books and lots of prizes will be on offer.
