EMSEA is a network of marine science educators acting as one voice across Europe and beyond. Our mission is to act as a hub for the European marine education community to promote and deliver Ocean Literacy across society by working with scientists, teachers, policy makers and the public.
Through membership, we support our members by sharing good practice and training opportunities through our annual international conferences. We work on grant funded projects, ensuring our members can benefit from this work. We organise events within our EMSEA regional groups and provide ways for the network to connect through digital platforms.
If you are an ocean educator, scientist, or generally a person who is interested in the future health of the ocean, individual EMSEA membership is for you.
The cost of individual membership is EUR 40 per year for a fixed 12 months term from the day of payment.
EMSEA establishes an Ocean Literacy Network for the first time in the Black Sea Basin, under the framework of BRIDGE-BS (bridgeblacksea.org). This Network will bring together marine scientists, educators, ocean professionals, and anyone who is enthusiastic and curious about the Black Sea. It will be built to develop ownership and stewardship for the protection of the Black Sea. Bridge-BS supports all new EMSEA members from the Black Sea region for the duration of the project and beyond. More info https://www.emsea.eu/regional-groups/black-sea
EMSEA supports students to join the Association for FREE. Whether you are studying towards a degree in marine sciences or any other technological, social, arts science, if you are interested in ocean literacy, we welcome you to join this community of like-minded individuals and organisations who can help you on your journey making a positive difference towards an ocean literate society. We hope EMSEA membership will inspire and enable you to take positive action in your field/region, and look forward to supporting you in any way we can.
