Marine Environmental Education (MEE) is a vital activity, since the marine environment is impacted by industrial and technologies involved in this sector. MEE is in strong connection with marine engineering. The players from this industry have to comply with environmental protection protocols and conventions. A marine cluster is a good way of approaching issues specific to the exploitation of resources of the sea. In the present, a particularity of marine pollution is that in enclosed seas (such as Black Sea is) and on coastal areas, the pollution is higher than in the open ocean. In order to fight with this reality, it is also vital to increase the public environmental awareness throughout specific education, not only to train specialists in this respect. This paper is providing the pylons on which MEE relies. From this paper will succeed how the objectives of MEE (awareness, knowledge, attitude, skills, participation) and its specific actions (environmental education and training, involvement, bringing people together) are supported by a marine cluster. The most important result of this study can be stated as: processes developed within MEE will enforce the involvement of specialists in solving marine pollution issues and will rise the environmental consciousness of communities, in a framework provided by a cluster oriented towards MEE.
