We are a group of Marine and Coastal Scientists and Professionals passionate about bringing science and citizens together.

We want to work on a micro-level to achieve change on a bigger scale: By offering intimate talks where marine scientists and professionals can engage directly with local communities we wish to foster a feeling of mutual benefit, increase ocean literacy and help empower coastal communities.

Through enabling people to better understand their surroundings, we aim to empower them, encourage them to take ownership of their communities and develop a sense of self-pride by increasing positive identification with their region's social and natural local heritage. Through connecting marine scientists and professionals with local people, we want to lay the foundations for a more transdisciplinary approach to science and policy in the future.
