The NAME-CaNOE 2020 Ocean Education Conference has moved to August 2021, please visit our 2021 conference page for the latest information.

Agenda: During the plenary session, panelists will introduce themselves and speak briefly about their role in the marine education community. Then, panelists will engage in a facilitated question and answer discussion in which all four panelists will be asked questions and encouraged to discuss the topic between them. After the plenary session, each panelist will lead a break-out session for further exploration of their perspective and experiences, and the chance to engage in discussion with participants.
