OCEAN LITERACY DRAFT STRATEGIC PLAN - Ocean Literacy for the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development

Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO

UN Agency

Ocean Literacy as a concept and approach is radically evolving from being a tool to be applied in formal education and training contexts to a tool and an approach for society as a whole, aimed at triggering actions towards Ocean sustainability.

The Ocean Literacy Framework identifies and illustrates how Ocean Literacy can specifically contribute to the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. The design of this Conceptual Framework considers the goal of engaging all members of society within the UN Decade. It assumes the fact that Ocean Literacy, in its broadest sense, can spearhead engagement and ownership across all types of stakeholders, and hence provide a critical pathway for implementation and adoption of the UN Decade.
