Title: PANACEA – Promozione delle Aree Naturali Attraverso i Centri di Educazione Ambientale
End date: 26 April 2011

Coordinator: Prof. Alan Deidun
The main objective of the PANACEA project was to promote the sound scientific management of biodiversity assets within Sicilian and Maltese MPAs by drawing on codes of best practice developed within selected MPAs and through the institution of environmental educational centres.
These centres can be considered as portals of edutainment, in which visitors (students, divers, tourists, locals) are regaled with a didactic experience through a kaleidoscopic overview of the MPA’s living resources through a number of ad hoc tools, including documentaries, interactive tools, permanent exhibitions and models, ecological laboratories, etc.
