Strengthening ocean education: OECS supports new learning platform

“This year, ocean governance was prominent on the agenda and the OECS Commission’s Ocean Governance Unit was pleased to join development partners in the launch of Think Blue — a first of its kind digital platform dedicated to enhance access to educational content concerning the oceans.

“Our vision is a world of informed ocean citizens – people who truly “think blue” and our mission is to accelerate access to ocean education, including via innovative approaches” stated Virtual Educa. The twenty year old initiative coordinated the Global Forum held in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil which received over 29.000 participants and professionals from Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa.

Virtual Educa was founded by the Organisation of the American States (OAS) and its member states in partnership with private sector technology partners focused on education such as Google, Microsoft, Intel and Lego Education.

The initiative seeks to foster innovation in education for social transformation and sustainable development, with an emphasis on Latin America and the Caribbean through an alliance of institutional organisations, cooperation agencies and public and private institutions, gathering the public, corporate, academic and civil society sectors.” Read more at
