Ocean Blues - turning eco-anxiety into eco-action

Research project

Short description

Ocean Blues is a communication project that wants to turn eco-anxiety into eco-action by linking non-academic young adults to the scientific community. The long-term goal is a sustainable use of the ocean.

The idea is to link non-academic young adults to the scientific community. Current and future generations need to work together to achieve a sustainable use of the ocean. Many young adults suffer from anxiety due to environmental issues such as climate change, pollution and high extinction rates. Being constantly exposed to images of oceanic floating trash island, drowning sea turtles, and bleaching corals, leads to a sense of hopelessness and grief.

The scientific community has a responsibility not only to raise alarm of these environmental issues but also to spread the word on possible solutions.
