Cultivating Ocean Champions

CEDO’S Educational Programs

CEDO Intercultural proudly invests in education, believing it holds the key to a brighter future for our oceans. For four decades, we’ve empowered thousands across Mexico and the U.S. with innovative learning experiences.

Here’s how we ignite passion for the environment:

  • Engaging Curricula: We continuously update our environmental education and School of the Sea programs, offering engaging content for children, youth, producers, local professionals, and tourists.
  • Specialized Skill-Building: Professional courses and competency certifications equip participants with valuable knowledge and skills in areas like sustainable fishing practices and marine conservation.
  • Reaching Diverse Audiences: Our inclusive approach caters to the specific needs of various groups, ensuring everyone has the opportunity to learn and contribute.

Sharing Best Practices: By actively sharing lessons learned, we scale the impact of our programs, reaching wider communities and driving positive change.

Our dedicated campus in Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, provides the perfect platform for learning:
