An online webinar on “Community and Citizen Awareness, Ocean Literacy” was held on the 21st of July 2020. The webinar was part of the e-training course on Understanding and acting for a healthy plastic-free Mediterranean Sea, organized by the BlueMed Initiative.
The webinar focused on how the citizens can become active players in the marine circular economy, towards shared sustainable choices: marine tourism, food, and water consumption, waste management, plastic reduction, etc. The speakers presented theories and practices for understanding ocean literacy & raising citizens and community awareness and provided information about the experiences of citizen's engagement in marine-based projects.
Following the presentations, a Q&A session was held with questions from the audience. The audience centered on the methods of litter collection and classification and student's participation in actions for ocean depollution.
