Many Australian marine educators, including the author of this article, assisted in developing the 7 Principles of Ocean Literacy [here].
Ocean Literacy means understanding the ocean’s influence on you and your influence on the ocean. The 7 principles of Ocean Literacy are ideas scientists and educators agree everyone should understand about the ocean.
The AAEE Marine Group have chosen to theme the next 7 years of Seaweek to follow those principles.
This year's theme is OL Principle One:
THE EARTH HAS ONE BIG OCEAN WITH MANY FEATURES.
