The National Marine Educators Association (NMEA) 2015 National Conference was held in historic downtown Newport, Rhode Island, USA.
Formal and informal marine educators from across the U.S. and around the world came together to help promote the mission of "making known the world of water, both fresh and salt.”
The NMEA 2015 conference was hosted by the Southeastern New England Marine Educators (SENEME).
|Many SFS partners took part in the conference including those from the University of Gothenburg, Ciência Viva, and the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research.|
The conference took place from June 29 through July 2 at the Newport Marriott, right in the middle of Newport. Sessions and plenaries included speakers from around New England and beyond, including an international panel on Ocean Literacy which included Sea For Society partners from the University of Gothenburg, Ciência Viva and the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research!
