OUR OCEAN, OUR FUTURE

We need a healthy Ocean to survive. But our Ocean is in trouble, and so are we. By providing regionally and locally relevant, entry-level online education programmes, the IOI Ocean Academy will enable interested laypersons to acquire the skills and knowledge needed to understand the complexities of the ocean and its local and global effects, now and in a changing future, laying the foundations for more informed understanding and personal daily decision-making.

 

POSITIVE CHANGE CAN ONLY COME WITH OCEAN KNOWLEDGE

  • Why is the Ocean so important to life on Earth?
  • What can be done globally and locally to protect it from the consequences of human behaviours?
  • How can the sustainable use of the Ocean which is so important for humans and their livelihoods, be ensured in the long term?

IOI Ocean Academy courses will seek to answer these questions and more during 20-hour online modules. The interdisciplinary organisation allows regionally and locally relevant topics to be approached with a more complete understanding of the different perspectives and necessary global solutions.

 

IOI OCEAN ACADEMY: OCEAN KNOWLEDGE FOR ALL

An IOI Ocean Academy Course is designed to upgrade Ocean literacy and provide an understanding of regionally and locally relevant Ocean information at an appropriate level. The IOI Academy Courses are tailored to the interests of laypersons.

 

Persons completing an IOI Academy Course will:

  • gain a basic understanding of the Ocean: the goods and services it provides, the threats to the Ocean, how to live in a more sustainable way with the Ocean;
  • learn about the importance of Ocean governance, sustainable and equitable human use, the principle of the common heritage of humankind, respecting the needs of future generations, all in locally relevant context;
  • be empowered to become more active locally as stakeholders to positively influence their communities and beyond;
  • be able to identify priority issues, trends and future challenges in Ocean issues, locally and globally.
