Mise à jour mercredi 3 juillet 2019, par Agnès

Dans le cadre du projet Européen (AANChOR -"All AtlaNtic Cooperation for Ocean Research and innovation"), IFREMER recherche un jeune ambassadeur.

Profil du jeune ambassadeur :

  • moins de 30 ans
  • volonté de s’impliquer dans le groupe d’ambassadeurs
  • sensibilité sur le développement durable et la gestion des océans, tout en étant à l’aise en anglais.

    Les frais de déplacement seront pris en charge par le projet pour cette mission en Irlande du 23 au 27 août 2019.

The Summer School :

The summer school will take place in Galway, Ireland, over a 4-day period to create awareness with an engaged group of around 20 youth leaders who can act as Ambassadors in their own countries along and across the Atlantic Ocean. The growing momentum generated by the global activities of FridaysForFuture have demonstrated once again the need to engage the leaders of tomorrow in responding to the global challenges of the present. Our ultimate objective is to build an Atlantic Community of a fully engaged young generation to create a ground swell of activism to support an Ocean aware society.
Over the course of the Summer School, Ambassadors will design and develop campaigns, together with communication and outreach experts to raise awareness of the issues affecting communities living by and from the Atlantic Ocean.

The Summer School will teach Youth Ambassadors :

◦ To become actors for change for the Atlantic Ocean
◦ To design and develop communication campaigns around ocean issues
◦ To reach out and engage local communities and experience the challenges of those living by the Ocean
◦ To maximise impact of activities through the development of content (e.g. articles, videos, blogs, performances)
◦ To lead by example on sustainability through the mobilisation of local capacity for small community projects.
◦ To be the generation that makes the difference
◦ About the power of Science Diplomacy, specifically the Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance

Activities of the Ambassadors beyond the Summer School :

The Summer School is only the beginning of the activities of the All-Atlantic Ocean Youth Ambassadors.
Following the Summer School, the Ambassadors will :
• Each be coached by an assigned project partner from AORAC-SA or AANChOR
