A touch of Blue in the EU Research Nights for a more Sustainable Use of the Ocean

Description du projet

Se connecter à l’océan

Les océans sont vastes et couvrent plus de 70 % de la surface de la Terre. Il est essentiel d’accroître les connaissances sur cette étendue d’eau salée continue et sur les personnes qui l’étudient. Le projet BlueNIGHTs, financé par l’UE, vise à aider les citoyens à mieux comprendre les multiples facettes et visages de ceux qui travaillent dans le domaine des sciences et de la recherche océanographiques. Une série de Nuits des chercheurs bleus de l’UE, reliées entre elles, démontrera que l’océan n’est pas seulement intéressant et source d’inspiration, mais qu’il s’agit également d’un champ d’étude pour des personnes aux origines et aux intérêts divers. Les BlueNIGHTs permettront aux gens de se familiariser avec les objectifs, les principes et les priorités du pacte vert pour l’Europe qui ont trait à l’océan, encourageant ainsi les Européens à mieux connaître l’océan.

Objectif

The main objective of the proposal is to bring the many facets and faces of people working in ocean science & research to the
general public of Europe by organising a series of interconnected EU Blue Researchers Nights (BlueNIGHTs) to demonstrate that the
ocean can be a source of inspiration, an object of interest/study, and a field of investigation for people with very different
backgrounds, hobbies and passions, including science, history, technology, sociology, pedagogy, economics, art, design, etc.
By doing so, this collective project will:
- Bring people to key objectives, principles and priorities of the European Green Deal that relate to the ocean: delivering a healthy
and resilient ocean that can support sustainable Blue Growth and respond to Societal Priorities of Europe.
- Contribute to make European citizens Ocean Literate in line with the objectives and priorities of EU4Ocean Coalition, an initiative
supported by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE).
The project will build on the following principles:
- Collective and truly European - mobilising organisations from each EU RSAs to prepare activities and events for presenting their
own research/scientific activities.
- Interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary/transdisciplinary - the partner organisations from different EU MS will represent a diversity of
disciplinary fields and research skills/experiences that are focusing on the ocean, and on the complex connections between human
activities and ocean ecosystems.
- Immersive, inclusive and interconnected - by combining: (a) an interactive and practical experiences on the spot (in each of the
partners location) building on doing, touching, gaming, trying, exploring; (b) an interactive virtual experience, by way of an
innovative virtual reality technology, that will allow the public to explore both the ocean and researchers activities by simulating real
life working conditons.
