International Pacific Marine Educators Network Conference 2018

The International  Pacific Marine Educators Network (IPMEN) is the initiative of selfless individuals who have dedicated themselves to improving education, awareness and action in regard to the sea around us.

The initiative began many years ago  and the One Ocean Marine Fourm (OOMF) was born in 2005.  Held in Hawaii, the platform was an Open Space discussion amongst educators from the length and breadth of the Pacific Basin. They agreed that it was important to help each other and share information to assist in bringing marine education and action to the publics attention, both locally and internationally.

Since the network, IPMEN, was formed regular conferences have been held in different countries.  This year the conference will be held in Taiwan.

Teachers and educators this could be just the mechanism you need to reinvigorate your commitment to yourself in your pursuit of excellence in marine studies. Enjoy the company of like minded individuals while broadening your knowledge in this amazing space.
