Hack4Oceans Hackathon 2021

Hack4oceans, organized by the European Commission, is a Youth Innovation Event that will bring together undergraduate students in blue economy-relevant disciplines from across Europe, private sector stakeholders, policy makers and academia. This intense hackathon-style innovation event aims to explore and co-create ideas that link the goal of a sustainable marine environment with new opportunities for jobs and prosperity.

Oceanthon 2021: Mediterranean Edition

The main theme of Oceanthon 2021 is "Ocean&Climate", as part of Pre-COP26 in Milan and the challenges of the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. The focus is dedicated to the Mediterranean area, for this reason the event is addressed to everyone, from researchers, innovators, developers, marine scientists, social scientists, designers, engineers, experts in economy, business and communication, from all the Mediterranean countries.

Webinar: Ocean and Climate Change: Building Adaptation, Mitigation, and Resilience

This event is aimed to explore the impacts of climate change and strategies to build adaptation and mitigation processes. It will also showcase the One Ocean Hub research on climate change impacts and building adaptation and resilience that is built on existing networks in some of our focus countries. The One Ocean Hub adopts inter- and trans-disciplinarity, working with stakeholders and experts from varied disciplines including marine science, law, anthropology, sociology, history, and arts.

Webinar: Climatic Controls on Metabolic Constraints in the Ocean

This webinar, hosted by SANCOR, will present a study where they have leveraged a compilation of physiological data quantifying the temperature sensitivity and oxygen requirements of metabolic rates for a range of marine species adapted to specific conditions (“ecotypes”). They use these data to evaluate the ocean’s “metabolic state,” the ability of environments to support aerobic metabolisms.

Webinar: Using an incremental approach for "wicked problems" in fisheries management and marine EBM

in this webinar, Jon Hare of NOAA fisheries will discuss the origins of incrementalism, how it can be applied to fisheries management and marine EBM, and 10 lessons that he has learned for carrying out NOAA Fisheries’ mission to provide advice “backed by sound science and an ecosystem-based approach to management”.

GOOS-OECD-MEDIN Webinar: Value chains in public marine data

An original survey of UK marine data users, conducted by the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS), the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the Marine Environmental Data and Information Network (MEDIN), explores the pathways through which marine data are used and transformed into actionable information, in order to better value vital marine information.

EMB Science Lunch Webinar: Navigating the Future V as inspiration and direction for marine science in the Ocean Decade

The European Marine Board will hold its 12th Science Lunch webinar next week on the topic of "Navigating the Future V as inspiration and direction for marine science in the Ocean Decade".  The Navigating the Future V from EMB recommends a solutions-oriented, transdisciplinary marine research agenda, co-designed with all stakeholders and with the governance of sustainability at its core. It can be found here. 

Webinar: Behavior Change for Climate Action for the Oceans and Beyond

More and more environmental practitioners are incorporating behavior change into their efforts to increase pro-environmental action, building off the success of the medical community in using behavior change to improve health. Cities, national governments, and utility agencies are some of the groups driving this trend. By increasing response efficacy (the belief that one can actually do something), we can help drive the behavior and social change needed to solve our climate crisis; response efficacy is one of the strongest influencing factors for public action.
