Les Enfants de la Mer,
a great national example
Organised since 2009 by the town of Argelès-sur-Mer, the event Les Enfants de la Mer has become a real national example in terms of sustainable development and environmental education. Follow their activity all year round in Pyrénées-Orientales.
The educational ambitions of Les Enfants de la Mer
Environmental protection can be learned from a very early age. This is the message that "Les Enfants de la Mer" aims to get across, through regular events aimed at young children and brought directly into schools.
The programme also arranges school field trips in order to raise awareness of environmental issues among children.
A good way of gently introducing the younger generations to the fragility of nature, both at sea and on land.
Discover the actions of Les Enfants de la Mer
The proposed activities and missions are varied: cleaning up beaches, releasing marine animals, or participating in fun, interactive workshops, the children acquire a sense of involvement while enjoying themselves!
The association also proposes free summer activities during the summer at the “Enfants de la Mer” village.
For anyone wishing to learn more about the environment and the related issues currently facing Argelès-sur-Mer various conferences are organised all year round.
Visit the exhibitions of Les Enfants de la Mer
Every year, an outdoor exhibition of giant photos is organised on a common theme.
This is the ideal opportunity to stroll on the sea front and admire a hundred or so photographic exhibits selected by “Les Enfants de la Mer”.
Children also have the right to exhibit their photos, a chance to admire the most beautiful shots taken by the youngsters of Argelès!
