The Canadian Ocean Literacy Coalition has launched: Land, Water, Ocean, Us: A Canadian Ocean Literacy Strategy, a collaborative framework for action to advance ocean literacy in Canada.
The Strategy and Implementation Plan is shaped by three overarching goals:
(1) to advance ocean knowledge by increasing understanding of how the ocean influences us and how our behaviours, decisions, and actions impact the ocean;
(2) to foster ocean values by strengthening positive public and organizational perceptions of the ocean;
(3) to empower ocean actions by reducing barriers and increasing engagement to support ocean health, community livelihoods, and human well-being.
Nine Action Streams have been co-developed to achieve these goals. You can join in those Action Streams and find other ways to get involved in advancing ocean literacy in Canada.
