Final Call For Irish Ocean Literacy Network Campaign Workshop

The Irish Ocean Literacy Network (IOLN) has issued its final call for a workshop in Dublin next Tuesday 6 May on how to design and develop an environmental awareness campaign.

The IOLN Design Workshop under the theme ‘We are islanders … My island, my ocean’ is being run with support from the SFI MaREI Centre, DCU Water Institute and AquaTT.

Members and interested parties are invited to join a ‘day of inspiration’ at the brainstorming and co-creation workshop for designing and developing a national campaign, working with a host of artists, storytellers and marketeers.

The morning session will be dedicated to sharing ideas, defining campaign strategy and drafting storyboards for campaign content.

The afternoon session will bring together graphic designers, professional science communicators and educators to work together to co-design and create campaign assets for different channels and mediums.

Further design and development will follow after the event in the run-up to launching the campaign next month, with a view to linking it with World Ocean Day on 8 June or SeaFest 2019 in Cork on 7-9 June.

The workshop is free for members of the IOLN, which extends a special welcome to science communicator and those with expertise and an interest in storytelling, animation, graphic design, visual scribing/graphic facilitation, videography, digital marketing and social media campaigns.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.

Marine Science Perhaps it is the work of the Irish research vessel RV Celtic Explorer out in the Atlantic Ocean that best highlights the essential nature of marine research, development and sustainable management, through which Ireland is developing a strong and well-deserved reputation as an emerging centre of excellence. From Wavebob Ocean energy technology to aquaculture to weather buoys and oil exploration these pages document the work of Irish marine science and how Irish scientists have secured prominent roles in many European and international marine science bodies.
