TOL2015: Transatlantic Ocean Literacy in support of Galway Declaration

Grigorov, I. (Organizer)

Activity: Attending an eventParticipating in or organising workshops, courses, seminars etc.

Description

TOL2015 builds on previous TOL efforts, but with a more specific aim: draft recommendations on how Ocean Literacy can serve marine research projects for greater societal impact, and contribute to Blue Growth objectives (What is Blue Growth? A short, and a long version) through more effective knowledge exchange and engagement with non-academic stakeholders and the public.

The recommendations should assist transatlantic marine research consortia supporting the Galway Statement on Atlantic Ocean Cooperation to capitalize on citizen science, promote a science-literate citizenry, and increase public awareness on Societal Challenges issues (e.g., ocean health, responsible ocean stewardship, food security, climate mitigation).
