Education and Outreach

Introduction

In its second decade plan, IR pledged its commitment to education, outreach, and capacity building. By investing the time, energy and resources necessary to build a successful E&O program, InterRidge will ensure that its message of responsible exploration and discovery of the world's deep ocean is heard by students, the future stewards of the environment worldwide; policy-makers; and other members of the general public. The hope is that reaching out, educating and motivating people to learn more about the mysteries of the deep sea - a place few will ever see in person - will engender a healthier respect for the Earth system at large.
