Protecting the ocean: our collective responsibility, our common interest

Supporting the development of cost-effective ocean literacy in Europe


How can we encourage Europeans to take a closer interest in their oceans and to treat them with greater respect and understanding? That’s the over-riding objective of ResponSEAble, an ambitious, 15-partner project. Our project is funded by Horizon 2020, ResponSEAble is mapping European marine research and knowledge to further our understanding of complex human-ocean relationships and the economic benefits that we derive from our seas and the ecosystems they support.

The project is also working on a raft of exciting media and outreach activities including films and film making competitions, an educational computer game and other learning materials, a social media campaign and an interactive website. The project’s media outreach aims to connect with a wide range of audiences. By generating greater public debate and knowledge, ResponSEAble, intends to support all sectors of European society take a more informed and responsible attitude and help secure healthier and more sustainable oceans.
