The UNESCO and its Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, released Ocean Literacy for All. A toolkit, a publication highlighting ocean literacy activities around the world and bringing together experiences from a variety of stakeholders who promote ocean literacy as a major tool for sustainable development in classrooms, boardrooms and governmental institutions.

This publication is made of two parts. The first part presents the history of ocean literacy, describes its framework made of seven essential principles, and connects them to international ocean science programs that contributes to enhancing ocean knowledge and observations.

The second part, after introducing the methodological approach based on the multi-perspective framework for ESD developed by UNESCO, presents 14 activities that could provide tested examples and support for the implementation of marine education initiatives.
