Engaged Activities

In 2014 the Outreach component of NANO was launched with the objective of providing support for engaging initiatives in increasing general public awareness of marine issues in developing countries. The Outreach component acts on two fronts: a) Constructing an online educational catalogue of support materials for outreach activities developed by NANO members; and b) Providing funding for small projects led by alumni members aiming to implement outreach activities in their countries.

The call for proposals happens twice a year. Here is the list of successful activities organized by the alumni with NANO funding.
