Summary This one-day hands-on training activity on several aspects of Ocean Science Communication is organized within the framework of the Ocean Teacher Global Academy (OTGA) of UNESCO/IOC IODE. In the context of ocean governance and marine resource management bolstering understanding of ocean science and its possible applications for society at large is the most effective way to trigger concrete actions in favor of a healthier, sustainable ocean. The need for effective ocean science communication is greater than ever given the present day competition for funding resources and involvement from the general public. This will be a hands-on course that looks at techniques and technologies, with a specific focus on digital storytelling and the use of social media, which people working in ocean science can use to develop and implement communication and outreach programs. The topics covered are: - Ocean science communication: introduction, tools and methods - Science commmunication and storytelling: techniques, digital tools, sharing information and engaging others through social media platforms, and capturing and sharing digital images and video footage - Hands-on session Learning outcomes: - Improved skills in developing narratives for ocean science communication - Improved skills in the use of online tools and social networks for science communication - Increased knowledge of digital photography and video techniques
