Join the Ocean Literacy Festival in the Mediterranean Sea

Event date:
25/09/2021 (All day)
Table of Contents
    The EU4Ocean Coalition is setting up a new round of engaging ocean literacy events. From scientific trekking, quizzes, science cafés or videos to public debates and educational activities for young changemakers and other audiences. There is no limit to your imagination, discover with us what different Mediterranean actors are proposing to make the Mediterranean blue!

    Supported by the Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries of the European Commission, the EU4Ocean Coalition is organising its Mediterranean Ocean Literacy Festival, which will showcase ocean literacy initiatives and activities from all coasts and countries of the Mediterranean Sea.

    This Mediterranean Ocean literacy festival will take place on Med Coast Day, September 25th, 2021, and is part of the wider EU4Ocean coalition Mediterranean Sea basin event (September 24 – 27), which aims at bringing ocean literacy to everybody’s mind and actions in the Mediterranean Sea.

    What to expect?

    The overall aim of the Mediterranean Ocean Literacy Festival is to connect Mediterranean ocean literacy actors and showcase the wide diversity of ocean literacy initiatives already in place. It will combine on-site and digital events organised in different Mediterranean locations (and then broadcasted online). Its rich and diverse programme will ensure that you find something that responds to your interest and curiosity... whether you are a student, young changemaker, parent or grandparent, teacher, marine science educator, researcher, elected representative, policy maker or marine professional.
