MI Ocean Net – Youth and the Oceans Conference Series 2011

NOTE: NEW DATE — Friday, March 11

GREAT NEWS! The Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University is about to kick off its 2011 series of
MI Ocean Net Youth and the Oceans Conferences. Over 1,000 junior and high school students, teachers, speakers,
volunteers, media, and numerous organizations are expected to gather all across NL. The Youth and the Oceans
Conferences series present youth with fresh ideas to ocean sustainability issues here in NL. These young minds
will be exposed to their role in some fairly challenging issues specific to NL and more importantly to the multitude
of opportunities to study, train, and work on those issues right here in NL. Each conference ignites the energy and
determination of youth to get engaged and take the first steps towards the education and training they’ll need to
create positive change in our beautiful province.
MI Ocean Net’s next Youth and the Oceans Conferences will take place in:
• Marystown – Friday, March 11 (Marystown Hotel)
