EU4Ocean Coalition for Ocean Literacy - Connecting diverse Organisations, Projects and People is a European Project supported by DG MARE of the European Commission. The aim is to build a European Ocean Coalition of people living in/near the Arctic aged 16 to 30 - the Youth4Ocean Forum - and to make Ocean Literacy a reality in Europe. The initiative focuses on five basins: Atlantic, Baltic, Black Sea, Mediterranean, and the Arctic.

Part of this involves setting up the Youth4Ocean Forum, and carrying out interviews with young people in Europe to understand what they would expect from such a forum and what they need.
The organisers of the Youth4Ocean Forum are having a few difficulties getting in touch with young people located near the Arctic or with an interest in the Arctic Ocean. Hopefully, you will be able to help! If you are passionate about the Arctic Ocean and have ideas that you would like to present at EU level, please get in touch with Delphine (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Delphine is the project officer, based at the Nausicaá Centre National de la Mer in Boulogne sur Mer, France.
The deadline to contribute to this stage of the project is quite tight – 30 April 2020. If you aren’t able to contribute before then, there will still be opportunities after this date with other activities.
If you know people in/near the Arctic aged 16 to 30 who would be interested in participating, please forward this message to them.
