Sea for Society Toolkit


Towards the Blue Society

Sea for Society is a European project which aim has been to ask European citizens and stakeholders about their expectations and what we can do better to implement a sustainable and fair management of the Ocean resources, and make them collaborate together to create a Blue Society.

The Sea for Society project partners have also organised some original mobilization activities, after consulting and talking to citizens and stakeholders from all over Europe. The main aim of all mobilisation has been to enrich, to illustrate and to implement the concept of Blue Society.

Several of the Sea for Society project partners are science centres, museums and aquaria. Their aim has been and will still be in the future to engage as many people as possible to the importance the Blue Society approach, and act all together for a better future. If you are a science centre, or you organize science festival or science communication activities in general, we hope you will be interested in having a look at the creative mobilization activities that Sea for Society has already tested in their countries.

Below you can find a description of all the tools that can be used for mobilisation, available in various languages and adaptable to various scenarios.

There are two types of tools available: some of them were created to reach people from our five target groups, which are citizens, youth, business sector, researchers and decision-makers, and other tools aim to involve more stakeholders in the Sea for Society project. Please feel free to use them or to adapt them to your local activities!

Each tool can be used individually, but they can also be combined to reinforce their impact.

If you use any of those materials in the future, we would be very happy to know about your contribution to Blue Society! Please write us at seaforsociety@nausicaa.fr

Sea for Society

Sea for society started with a consultation phase involving stakeholders and citizens, aiming to raise awareness and identify top challenges in our daily interactions with the sea. Followed by a project’s mobilisation phase, advocating a collective vision for sustainable marine environments, the project eventually formed and introduced a future vision for the Ocean - the “Blue Society”.
