Join us on World Oceans Day to find out how human health is linked to the ocean, and how the ocean depends on us. Register now here and discover more!
This free webinar, coordinated by the SOPHIE project, the SEArica Intergroup, the European Marine Board and the BlueHealth project will explore the field of Oceans and Human Health, with experts from across Europe providing background on why this emerging and exciting discipline is important for all of us.
Humans have interacted with the Ocean since ancient times. We have used it as a means of transportation, recreation, a source of food and raw materials, and more recently to generate renewable energy.
Whilst the ocean can benefit human health and boost wellbeing via activities like recreation and relaxation, it can also pose risks to human health – through factors such as flooding and pollution.
This complicated mix of threats and opportunities interact in ways we don’t fully understand. Exploring these relationships is the basis for an emerging scientific discipline called “Oceans and Human Health”.
During the webinar, we will share our personal experiences of this emerging field and give you an opportunity to ask questions.
