Ocean Literacy With All
What is Ocean Literacy With All?
Ocean Literacy With All (OLWA) is a Decade endorsed programme led by IOC-UNESCO, together with a global team of partners, including COLC. OLWA aims to advance ocean literacy through designing and implementing transformative locally and globally relevant research-based activities and projects by and for diverse stakeholders. During the first two years (2021-2023), this programme will focus on:
- Developing a global ocean literacy research programme (which the OLRC initiative is part)
- Strengthening the global ocean literacy community through targeted networking activities
- Supporting diverse stakeholders to engage in ocean literacy through specific training programmes
- Supporting the incorporation of ocean literacy across all Decade Programmes to promote and advance ocean literacy
