RECONNECT SCIENCE WITH THE BLUE SOCIETY

Descrizione del progetto

Avvicinare i cittadini delle zone costiere alla scienza

La regione del Mediterraneo si sta riscaldando del 20 % più rapidamente rispetto al resto del mondo ed è già gravemente colpita dal degrado ambientale. Oltre 200 milioni di persone vivono lungo le coste settentrionali e molte di loro subiscono le conseguenze del riscaldamento globale poiché dipendono dalle risorse marine e dal turismo. Il progetto Blue-connect, finanziato dall’UE, unirà partner da cinque importanti città costiere della parte mediterranea della Croazia con l’obiettivo di rafforzare le relazioni umane con il mare e la scienza. Avvicinando la ricerca e i ricercatori al pubblico, Blue-connect promuoverà il riconoscimento pubblico dell’istruzione in ambito scientifico e di ricerca e costruirà fiducia e comprensione nei confronti della scienza e del relativo impatto sull’economia e la società blu nella regione.

Obiettivo

Blue-connect gathers partners from 5 main coastal cities of the Mediterranean part of Croatia, whose research is greatly characterized by natural, biomedical, environmental, social, and economic aspects of the sea. Mediterranean is severely affected by climate change and environmental degradation, and at the same time dependant on marine resources and tourism, and in need for enhancement of human relationships with the sea and science. Climate and environmental risks are recognized threats on EU level and globally, and as such are addressed through several initiatives, among which are Green Deal and SDGs. The main objective of Blue-connect is to reconnect science with society by bringing research and researchers closer to the public, boosting public recognition of science and research education, and building trust and understanding of science and its impact on the blue society in the region. Composed of 5 WPs that reflect the overall objectives, project will implement activities that promote research and science in an understandable and comprehensible way and encourage engagement of the general public and youth with science to jointly act on relevant problems facing the Mediterranean. Awareness campaign will increase comprehension and understanding of science, and attract youth and the general public to the main project events. Researchers at Schools will implement interactive experiments and workshops to boost pupil’s curiosity and interest in research and science careers. Activities during the NIGHT will allow the public and youth to participate in experiments that will help them understand research and science. To ensure the activities are achieving desired impact, methodology and tools for evaluating the impact of project activities and the perception of the general public and youth will be developed and implemented. Successful implementation of the project will ultimately increase trust in research and science by the general public and youth in Croatia.
