Informing on “oceanography in progress” is the main objective of oceans connectes. By relying on the scientific community and its references, the media’s ambition is to create a trusted scientific reference platform that guarantees verified and robust information related to the ocean. By disseminating scientific facts in a broad and popularised manner, the information can be accessible to the greatest number of people and enable everyone to rediscover the desire to know and the keys to understanding.

Linking for innovation and action. Oceans Connectes was born out of the need to create a strong bond between the public, marine scientists, maritime professionals and industries, educators and learners in the maritime and environmental sectors.

Inspiring for the future. The diversity of professions and career paths in the field of marine sciences is highlighted. The massive dissemination of job offers or professional training shows the numerous opportunities that exist to work in the field of marine sciences. In addition, the centralised announcement of a marine science agenda should allow everyone to participate, online or close to home, and to come and get information and to look at the ocean.

Impact for pushing to action. Oceans Connectes wants to put science back at the heart of the education and awareness-raising processes. It is necessary for everyone to understand the environmental issues at stake, a prerequisite for our common action to protect our health and our humanity. It clearly lays the foundations for the construction of a common and shared scientific culture of the oceans.

oceans connectes is an innovative tool, a new showcase that responds to a societal need based on cooperation for the common good. For the first time, scientists, industrialists, professionals, educators, associations, journalists and communicators are working together on a single platform for popularising science with the aim of raising awareness, educating and transmitting.
