Ocean Literacy Artistic Movie - #WorldOceanDays
On the occasion of 2020 World Oceans Day (June 8th), UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission organized the first Virtual Ocean Literacy Summit, with the support of the European Global Ocean Observing System (EuroGOOS), Ocean Wise and Experiential Atelier. During this event, artists from across the globe exchanged ideas, experiences and insights on the future of Ocean Literacy in the context of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030).
A unique audio-visual immersive movie was especially produced for the summit by a group of artists (Can Buyukberber) and musicians (Altın Gün Band). By using art and creativity to help save our ocean, Ocean Literacy is a powerful tool to create a society able to make informed and responsible decisions.
