Press Release: March 2017

The third issue of the Sea Change project newsletter showcases a range of innovative activities taking place across Europe to boost European citizens’ “Ocean Literacy”, an understanding of the ocean’s influence on us and our influence on the ocean. The newsletter is now available to download from the project’s website: http://seachangeproject.eu/images/SEACHANGE/Media_Centre/Sea-Change-Project-News-Issue-3.pdf

Sea Change is a three-year EU Horizon 2020-funded project that is establishing a fundamental “Sea Change” in the way European citizens view their relationship with the ocean by increasing Ocean Literacy throughout society.

The third issue of the Sea Change project newsletter presents the exciting outreach events taking place across Europe to encourage people to become ocean literate. One such event is “Crab Watch”, a citizen science initiative where members of the public are challenged to make an inventory of beach crabs by carrying out standardised protocols. This initiative engages with the public by inviting them to share useful scientific information while also raising awareness of the impact of non-native species. The newsletter also includes articles on the Sea Change online course entitled “From ABC to ABSeas: Ocean Literacy for all”, which offers educators innovative ways to teach Ocean Literacy. The course is available, on the European Multiple MOOC Aggregator (EMMA) in the following languages: English, French, Spanish, Italian and Catalan. To access the course, see:  https://platform.europeanmoocs.eu/course_from_abc_to_abseas_ocean_liter.

Other stories include updates on recent contributions to ocean events, news from Sea Change’s sister Horizon 2020 project ResponSEAble, Ocean Literacy in the news; and key events for your Ocean Literacy calendar. A special feature on Sea Change’s Education and Lifelong Learning initiatives details how the project is empowering educators, students and educational communities to help address Ocean Literacy and advocate behaviour change for ocean health. Readers will also receive tips on how to prevent ocean pollution and are challenged to pledge to make a Sea Change at: http://seachangeproject.eu/takeaction.
