Bringing the Ocean to Society
17 May 2017
New Italian Network on Ocean Literacy
The purpose of Ocean Literacy is to promote the incorporation of sea science into school curricula and to raise awareness about the goods and services that the sea provides.

The network also aims at raising awareness of the social, economic and cultural importance of sea and sea related services to all stakeholders, including decision-makers, individual citizens and private sector representatives.

Their motivation is that an individual who has greater knowledge of the sea will have the tools to:

  • Understanding the importance of the sea for humanity;
  • Communicating effectively to others the importance of the sea and its value;
  • Make responsible decisions regarding the sea and its resources.
