Abstract Themes

  • Blue education

As marine educators, we know the importance of blue education in the 21st century for all students and citizens. This theme encourages presentations, posters and workshops that provide insights in blue education, both for formal and informal education, and the ways to make blue education relevant to students and adults of all ages.

  • Careers and jobs in the blue economy

The 2022 EMSEA conference aims to build more connections between marine education, and jobs, careers and business opportunities related to the sea. We include presentations and posters that identify or describe programs that help students into a marine or maritime career or that help to develop the economy, whether it be offshore energy, shipping, aquaculture, ecotourism or an innovative entrepreneurial activity.

  • Ocean technology and education

In this session you can present all technology-driven projects and tools that aid in learning about the ocean such as technologies related to exploring the ocean, building and deploying of instruments, working with data or acquiring relevant skills.

  • Ocean conservation

Ocean conservancy is tackling our ocean's greatest global challenges, like biodiversity loss, climate change and plastic pollution. In this session, you can share your programs, projects and business on taking action to protect and restore our coasts, seas and the ocean.

  • Open Session
