Description

Join Fiona Crouch, Sea Change Manager at the MBA, at a screening of the Blue Planet II: Our Blue Planet episode, followed by a Q&A session to really delve into the detail of this wonderful series!

Only an Ocean Literate society, who understands the inextricable links between humans and the ocean, can preserve the health of Our Blue Planet for generations to come. Fiona has been at the forefront of the development of Ocean Literacy in Europe and can help us delve deep into how empowered ocean literate citizens can contribute to this global goal, drawing on a wealth of experience gained as the manager of the EU Horizon 2020 funded project Sea Change; as the co-founder and President of European Marine Science Educators Association (EMSEA), and from working closely with transatlantic partners such as the National Marine Educators Association (NMEA) and advising on the Board of the Asia Marine Educators Association (AMEA).

If you were hooked as the natural beauty of our blue planet, and the life beneath our seas as narrated by Sir David Attenborough; and were glued to your screens as Blue Planet II took to the screen a whole 10 years after the 1st series; then come along to the MBA to hear about how the impact of such an iconic series can stretch well beyond your TV screen!

The MBA will be hosting a series of screenings, the first of which will begin with an introduction by guest speaker Joe Treddenick. Local experts in the corresponding fields will host subsequent episodes (details of other screenings here).

All welcome! MBA members are invited to attend for free, while non-members are asked to donate £3 (to be paid on the night on arrival). One complimentary drink is included for all attendees.

Please note: Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Due to venue capacity, accompanying adults must book their ticket separately.
