Ocean School Global Community Project: Building Ocean Literacy through Community Engagement

Dalhousie University - Canada


The project seeks to develop content that illustrates how global communities are innovating to solve ocean challenges.

This endorsed project seeks to define and prototype a new approach to build capacity in knowledge creation, sharing, and education and to empower communities (in the Canadian Arctic and Peru) via the Ocean School platform using a variety of tools and methods, which will be available in 4 languages. The project has the potential to expand to other countries/regions in the future once framework is established.
