Working groups

Group 1Ocean literacy and education

               Empowering the future generations

How can we effectively engage educators with ocean literacy? How can we foster two-way communication between educators and researchers? Do we need to change school curricula?

Educators, researchers and other education stakeholders from both sides of the Atlantic exchange best practices and debate strategies to implement transatlantic ocean literacy.

 

Group 2:  Ocean literacy and society

The role of science centres, aquariums and NGOs

How can we co-design innovative ways to raise awareness of the two-way interactions between the Atlantic and our lives? How can we overcome the awareness – action gap?

Educators from science centers, museums and aquaria, specialists from industry and NGOs will exchange best practices and debate strategies to empower citizens and other stakeholders to make responsible decisions on ocean stewardship.

 

Group 3:  Our shared heritage, our shared future

Ocean and culture

The ocean inspires. The ocean has always connected civilizations and made cultural exchanges possible. How can we highlight these dimensions in ocean literacy? And how can we use them to raise awareness of the importance of the ocean for society?

This session will explore the role of maritime history and art in Ocean Literacy.
