ARE YOU OCEAN LITERATE ?
MARINE LIFE - This humpback whale is one example of a magnificent animal that is at the mercy of human activity. Humans are for the most part unaware of the harm their fast-lane lifestyles are causing. We aim to change that by doing all we can to promote ocean literacy.
1. Sea Change aims to establish a fundamental “Sea Change” in the way European citizens view their relationship with the sea, by empowering them, as Ocean Literate citizens, to take direct and sustainable action towards a healthy ocean, healthy communities and ultimately a healthy planet.
2. Responseable encourages Europeans to take a closer interest in their oceans and to treat them with greater respects and understanding.
Other projects also contribute to ocean literacy such as:
3. The European Atlas of the Seas which is an easy and fun way for professionals, students and anyone interested to learn more about Europe's seas and coasts, their environment, related human activities and European policies. It was developed to raise awareness of Europe's oceans and seas, in the context of the EU's integrated maritime policy.
Another project under development (subject to funding/sponsorship) is the Miss Ocean water-sports pageant that focuses on ocean issues - with Mister Ocean to run in tandem, if the Miss Ocean concept is well received.
