Marine CoLAB #2

Started: March 12, 2015, 10 a.m.
Ended: March 12, 2015, 9 p.m.


The second workshop of the Marine CoLAB builds on ideas and suggestions that emerged during the first meeting in January. In the second workshop we looked at what the participants want to contribute to Marine CoLAB, which challenges and hypotheses are present in the group and which specific experiments can be designed to respond to these challenges.

The challenges and hypotheses that emerged from the participants current work and discussions during the workshop included systemic change and connecting disparate actions and experiments, public engagement with rules, valuing the cultural dimension of oceans, as well as the need to change perceptions of marine conservation in general and NGOs in particular. Based on these challenges, the participants designed five experiments that could be implemented on the short term (until July 2015), but can also form the basis of longer term investigations within Marine CoLAB.
