A Sea Change for Ocean Literacy: Co-exploring ocean topics and issues

Added on 2017-10-24
From Monday 30 October 2017 to Friday 17 November 2017, ‘Sea Change’ organizes a three-part seminar series. Topics and issues related to our ocean and seas, as well as their future societal importance, will be discussed. We invite all people with an interest in marine science education to participate.


The European Sea Change Project partners, led by CoExploration Limited (Dorset, UK), and supported by the College of Exploration, (USA) and Flanders Marine Institute (Belgium), organizes a series of online seminars from Monday 30 October 2017 to Friday 17 November 2017.

The three-part seminar series will focus on three major ocean and sea issues to highlight their societal importance in the future: ocean and human health, seabed mapping, and aquaculture. The course is designed by and for educators at both informal and formal education institutions, for all ages and at all student grade levels. Scientists, graduate students, business and government personnel and any other interested citizens from across the Atlantic can freely participate.

The online program includes an online forum, recorded video presentations, live video conferences, resources, and the compilation of all relevant products and videos created for the Sea Change Project. Each real-time live event will feature presentations by marine scientists who are internationally recognised experts in their disciplines. Participants have the opportunity to interact with the presenters and other participants and to learn about ocean and human health, seabed mapping, and aquaculture.
