The project ResponSEAble, funded by Horizon 2020, is essentially about protecting the European oceans. By focusing on Ocean Literacy, the over-riding objective of the project, is to raise the understanding of everybody´s (individual and collective, direct and indirect) responsibility and interest in a healthy ocean.

To do so, the ambitious 15-partner project is mapping European marine research and knowledge to further our understanding of complex human-ocean relationships and the economic benefits that we derive from our seas and the ecosystems they support.

The information gathered will be utilized to provide cost-effective recommendations for Ocean Literacy in Europe, and for exciting media and outreach activities for a wide range of audiences. This includes films, film making competitions, social media, educational computer game, interactive website, and other learning materials.

By generating greater public debate and knowledge, ResponSEAble, intends to support all sectors of European society take a more informed and responsible attitude and help secure healthier and more sustainable oceans.
