Constructing the EU Ocean Alliance: Boosting ocean literacy in Europe

    The session will present a new initiative to raise ocean literacy across Europe, the European Ocean Alliance. This is a platform bringing together European groups and organisations active in ocean preservation and ocean literacy to share good practices in ocean literacy and develop joint ocean literacy initiatives. It will also promote ocean-related issues within primary and secondary schools across Europe, through the creation of a European network of Blue Schools and enhance awareness and civil engagement/activism of young people through the establishment of a European Youth Forum for the Ocean.
