LAUNCHING AUTUMN 2020
The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) and ITN Productions Industry News will be co-producers of an online series exploring ocean health, the stewardship of the seas and the impact the oceans have on society.
‘Ocean Aware’ will explore the challenging issues in the sector, highlight the importance of preserving the ocean resources and show how marine professionals are addressing the challenges of the modern world; including climate change and renewable energy, scientific advances and the ethical issues surrounding marine exploration, as well as the use of new technology.
The programme will combine key sector interviews, news items and sponsored editorial profiles which will be launched throughout 2020. The series will form part of an extensive communications campaign featuring IMarEST members and professional partners.
Dr Bev MacKenzie, Technical & Policy Director, The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology, said: “We find ourselves at a critical juncture in ocean history and there has never been a more important time to raise awareness and take action on global ocean issues. We’re delighted to partner with ITN Productions again to explore the emerging opportunities and key challenges facing the oceans that will shape the marine industry’s outlook for many decades to come.”
Elizabeth Fisher-Robins, Head of Industry News, ITN Productions said: “We are really excited by the opportunity to partner again with The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology to create a series that will educate and inform viewers about the key role marine professionals have in the sustainable use of the oceans resources and maintaining ocean health.”
