The Global Ocean Science Education Workshops are sponsored and facilitated by the international Consortium for Ocean Science Exploration and Engagement (COSEE), the UNESCO Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, and the College of Exploration. The 2017 GOSE Workshop will focus on forging new connections within the global marine community. The goals are to:
• Bring together the ocean science, education, policy and business sectors;
• Foster the work of the five international working groups;
• Initiate the development of a certificate course for business leaders and policymakers; and
• Provide a forum to discuss coastal resilience and share examples of resilient cities.
