PRESENTER – Earle De Blonville – Why the Ocean Basins are so Important to Us
Australia is the world’s only country surrounded by three major Ocean basins, yet few Australians know how critical this is to our future.
Working with the UN’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission in Paris, local Oceanic Research Institute (ORI) plans to develop Australia’s first integrated Ocean Literacy program and provide a key environmental resource for Northern Rivers students and teachers.
ORI’s CEO, Earle de Blonville, explains how this will encourage careers in STEM subjects, and help build Australia’s science reputation.
