Be a part of the development of a uniquely Canadian perspective on Ocean Literacy!
Call for abstracts open January 31- March 14, 2018!
You’re invited to submit an abstract to present a talk or poster at CaNOE’s 2018 conference. This year’s theme is “Navigating Canadian Ocean Literacy” and it’s setup as a working conference. An opportunity to help shape ocean literacy principles for Canada. During the three days, sessions will celebrate successes in efforts towards greater ocean literacy in Canada, discuss ways in which we can increase these successes in the future, explore new and innovative ways to communicate ocean literacy to all ages and how Canadian ocean literacy efforts can contribute to global awareness.
The goal of the 2018 symposium is to produce a declaration of tasks to navigate and increase ocean literacy in Canada.
CaNOE will put these tasks into action charting the course to achieve change. Workshops will follow presentations with conference delegates answering questions defining the actions needed to increase Canadian ocean literacy. The declaration will be presented to CaNOE board of directors and put into action. Sessions are organized into subthemes:
- Ocean literacy and our culture
- Ocean literacy and education and communication
- Ocean literacy and technology
- Ocean literacy and stewardship and advocacy
Poster and oral presentations welcome, open January 31st to March 14th with notification of acceptance April 30th
