Ocean literacy through visualisation and storytelling: local, regional and international examples

On 20 May 2021, the European Atlas of the Seas will participate in the online workshop 'Ocean literacy through visualisation and storytelling: local, regional and international examples' hosted by the Irish Ocean Literacy Network (IOLN).

This workshop will explore best practices used in current ocean literacy initiatives and present some of the most inspiring ocean literacy “stories”. Participants will share knowledge and expertise, and discuss the future of ocean literacy in Europe. How can we connect and build an integrated ocean literacy movement in the European Union?  Using the examples of the local youth projects, national programmes and the European Atlas of the Seas, the official digital mapping tool of DG MARE dedicated to ocean literacy, we will discuss this question.

The workshop will be moderated by Noirin Burke, Co- Secretariat of the Irish Ocean Literacy Network. Speakers will include:
