From 28 April to 5 May we will be running Peace Fleet Italy, a project that gives children from a variety of backgrounds a life changing experience while sailing the open sea.
This event is inspired by Peace Fleet Mirno More (Calm Sea) which takes place in Croatia. This annual event dedicated mainly to children in difficult conditions or situations (physical, social) or minor political refugees.
During the course of a week, from 29 April to 6 May 2023, several groups of young people will have the opportunity to stay on a sailing boat, supported by pedagogic activities , in the Port of Brindisi. As well as day trips and on-shore activities, we hope to make a passage to Monopoli.
In this first pilot edition, ten boats of various sizes will accommodate up to five children on board, supported by a team of pedagogic experts. The participants will have the opportunity to take part in an entirely new experience very different to that of their ordinary lives. This experience will be uplifting and positive and will encourage inclusion, integration and collaboration.
