Wednesday 30 November 2022 - Thursday 1 December 2022

: Sete, France

CommOCEAN 2022 is the 5th International Marine Science Communication Conference, this time taking place in Sète (France) & Online from 30 November - 1 December 2022.

PML will have two attendees (Dan Jones and Thecla Keizer) and Thecla will speak in the session: ‘Lessons learnt from online events’ moderated by Ángel Muñiz Piniella or the EMB Secretariat where she will focus on ‘The very first (virtual) Ocean Pavilion at the UN Climate Change meetings’ of which PML was a co-founder.

'Dissemination, outreach and communication of scientific knowledge are becoming more and more important in today’s society, where social inclusion is an integral part of environmental protection and sustainable development. This is particularly true for the world of ocean research, a world that is largely hidden from our view, representing an added challenge to the communication of marine research. From its inception, the Ocean Literacy movement has advocated closer interaction between marine scientists, educators and other stakeholders (the public, policy-makers, private sector),and inspired new events and networks all over the world. CommOCEAN is a prime example of such new initiatives.
CommOCEAN 2022 aims to provide communication skills and inspiration to communicators across a range of experience levels. Many sessions are suitable for all, but some elements of the programme will run simultaneously and are tailored for those looking to build their communications skills and to those looking to move their communications to the next level.
