Euronews OCEAN focus on European Year of Skills

As part of the European Year of Skills, season five (episode four) of Ocean talks about how important it is for the blue economy to build skills and bring in new generations.

Many sectors of the blue economy struggle to find the right people, which can hamper growth. However, several initiatives, such as EU-funded projects BRIDGES, MarLEM and ScienceDIVER, are working to close the knowledge gaps, up-skill or re-skill working professionals, and bring industry, high school, and administration together to meet the demand for blue skills. These efforts not only open up new and exciting career paths but also help protect the ocean from mounting dangers.

OCEAN is a Euronews magazine in collaboration with the Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (MARE). It features monthly 8-minute videos which feature projects and developments related to the ocean and coastal communities.

Broadcast since 2019, OCEAN features episodes on marine protected areas, small-scale fisheries, ocean energy, aquaculture, IUU fishing, sustainable fisheries and much more.
