The EuroGOOS Ocean Literacy Working Group organized a successful session at the 10th EuroGOOS International Conference in Galway, Ireland (3-5 October 2023).
The session featured talks about lessons learnt in several ocean literacy activities. In addition, the session discussed the future EuroGOOS Ocean Literacy Working Group training for scientists to engage in ocean literacy. A survey with the Conference participants was conducted to gather data for the discussion. The survey demonstrated a significant interest in such training and gave ideas about the form and focus.
As part of the Conference social programme, the Galway Atlantaquaria held a reception in its premises to popularize societal engagement as an important area of the work of scientific institutions. The reception, co-organized with the EuroGOOS Office, included short inspirational talks, a music concert, and special EuroGOOS scavenger hunt and games, and story telling.
