The #OceanDialogues2019 is a joint event between the European Projects MARINA and ResponSEAble on the role of Ocean Literacy and Responsible Research and Innovation in supporting effective Ocean Governance.
By working at the interface between society, policy ad science, the event will address challenges such as engagement, co-creation and shared responsability.
Countries, businesses and society are giving increasing attention to the economic, social and environmental dimensions of ocean matters, including in relation to climate change. The sustainable management of the ocean raises many issues, including in terms of ocean governance - an area where the European Union (EU) with a well-developed marine & maritime policy framework is playing a leading role.
Effective ocean governance requires that adequate knowledge is produced, shared and used, and that the research and innovation agenda become responsive to the society needs, thus contributing to the sustainable management of the ocean. In particular, Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and effective Ocean Literacy (OL) are seen as essential to effective ocean governance, ensuring the sea matters to all.
