Dear <<First Name>>

Fridays For Future is a youth movement started by Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg calling on politicians, captains of industry and really all adults to stop procrastinating and finally turn talk into climate action. She is an inspiration for students in many countries and has given rise to this growing movement of “going on strike” to force climate protection. And the call is being heard also by many older people who support the movement and take to the streets calling for action NOW! The next big rally is scheduled for 15 March in Brussels and many big and small cities.

Stop coal now and invest full speed into renewable energies, change mobility, stop plastic pollution of waterways and the ocean, stop the dramatic fall in biodiversity which threatens the very foundations of life on Earth as we know it. These demands are at the very heart of what Mundus maris stands and works for.

Our work for and with women in fisheries, the implementation of the guidelines for prosperous and sustainable small-scale fisheries in the context of the sustainable development goals and strengthening partnerships for progress this year needs YOUR HELP.

Can you give us some of your time for translations or corrections of web articles in five languages (English, German, French, Italian and Spanish). Can you volunteer with us in organising events for World Oceans Day (8 June) in Argentina, Belgium, Nigeria, Senegal and elsewhere? Do you want to become a member and / or get involved in other ways?

The water cycle and ocean protection with young adults in Brussels

Combining practice and theory always adds a lot to understanding a problem and its solutions. In this sense, the dynamic science teacher at the Montjoie Institute in Uccle, Belgium, Ms Nlandu, came to the Mundus maris booth during the 2018 environment festival to discuss the possibilities of collaboration. Since then, the work programme of the year has consolidated and another class has joined. Thus, on February 11, 2019, an excursion to the Senne in Anderlecht.

Cornelia E Nauen of Mundus maris and board chair of Q-quatics was invited to talk about sustainable fish.
