Sea Change

The project Sea Change

Running from 2015 to 2018

Coordinator: Marine Biological Association (United-Kingdom)

Consortium: 17 Partners

Geographic Zone: 9 Countries

The Sea Change project helped to establish a fundamental change in the way citizens view their relationship with the sea, by empowering them, as Ocean Literate citizens, to take direct and sustainable action for a healthy ocean, for healthy communities, and ultimately for a healthy planet.

In this project the World Ocean Network was responsible for promoting World Ocean Day. We developed a toolbox to support the creation of activities on the theme of marine plastic pollution. The Network also mobilised two of its members, CeDePesca in Argentina and Nausicaa in France, to implement local activities promoting ‘Ocean Literacy’.
