Subject: ASLO Summer Meeting 2005: Special Session on Education


Dear Colleagues: 

Hola!  We would like to invite your participation in the following session
of the 2005 summer meeting of the American Society of Limnology and
Oceanography (ASLO) in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, June 19-24

SS49.  An Ocean Literacy Campaign 

Organizers: Michiko Martin, National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration's National  Marine Sanctuaries (michiko.martin at noaa.gov) and
Francesca Cava, National Geographic Society (francesca.cava at noaa.gov) 

Session Description:  It was most recently recognized by the Preliminary
Report of the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy that "to successfully address
complex ocean- and coastal-related issues, balance the use and conservation
of marine resources, and realize future benefits from the ocean, an
interested, engaged public will be needed."  The Commission identified ocean
education as a key component of the strategy to promote lifelong learning
that leads to an informed public.  A technologically advanced world requires
a scientifically and environmentally literate public. An educated public can
keep pace with technological advances as well as environmental issues of
great complexity and scale.  This special session will bring together
researchers leading the effort to increase ocean literacy through ocean
education.  Presentations that focus on efforts that integrate K-12 teachers
and students in scientific research are especially encouraged.  Papers will
also be encouraged that identify new scientific discoveries that have not
made it into text  books and how to make this information and data available
to teachers and classrooms. 

Please consider submitting an abstract to this special session on ocean
science research and education.  Abstract submission deadline is February 1.
