    The aim of the event is to give visibility to all relevant Arctic Ocean related communities, including schools and pupils, teachers, marine science educators, stakeholders from marine-related sectors, NGOs, youth, policy-makers and government representatives, public institutions, researchers and academia, conservationists, entrepreneurs, other ocean professionals as well as general citizens.

    Three virtual events on the 5th of April are offering insights into Arctic Ocean literacy activities and include active exchanges of these communities.

    • The first element is going to give practical examples of improving Arctic Ocean Literacy within (and outside of) the EU. Members of the network showcase and discuss ongoing activities of the EU4Ocean coalition and its communities in the Arctic Ocean. It also includes a live exchange on the If Oceans Could Speak” Podcast, sharing experiences and challenges.
    • The second element focuses on schools, teachers and marine science educators. It offers examples of engaging Arctic education materials and practices in schools, and space to exchange on the challenges that educators are facing in bringing knowledge about the Arctic to their audiences. This workshop links educators with existing solutions for their issues and creates contacts to solve ongoing challenges.
    • The third element creates a space for exchange of youths from the Youth4Ocean community with youth from across the EU, also allowing to highlight the work of Young Ocean Advocates.

    The conclusion of the event takes place on the 8th of April. This ties the discussions and outcomes of all three previous elements together. Linking the results of these discussions provides the ground to develop solutions across the involved communities.

    Join the event and contribute with your ideas and views on Arctic Ocean literacy from across the circumpolar Arctic!

    The high-level opening starts the meetings off on the 5th of April, from 10 am CET on, and the following events will take place later that day.
