Blueprint: The Future of Our Seas

Opportunity for Public Engagement Training and Practice

Human well-being is directly affected by the health of our seas, yet public awareness of many of the challenges facing the marine environment remains low. For decades, researchers have investigated issues such as non-native species, climate change, pollution, overfishing, and ocean acidification, but these topics are only recently gathering interest from outside the academic community.

This year, NERC and the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE) are offering the opportunity to work with public engagement professionals, artists and creatives to train and to inspire scientists.

Training will talke place in Plymouth and Oban.

The deadline for applications for the Plymouth training is 5pm on Friday 16th March.

The deadline for applications for the Oban training is 5pm on Friday 1st June.

Please see the
