Marine and Freshwater Citizen Engagement Training – Needs Analysis Survey

Across 2023 and 2024, the PREP4BLUE project will launch a series of free training supports, resources, funding, and networking opportunities for those involved in citizen engagement in marine and freshwater matters. PREP4BLUE is a Horizon Europe project (grant no. 101056957), funded by the European Union, that supports the EU’s Mission: Restore Our Ocean and Waters by 2030.

You are invited to take part in a brief survey (7-10 minutes) that will help us design our resources to be most useful to you. All data and results are anonymized.

Here is a link to the survey:

The survey is available in 10 languages (Bulgarian, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish). To change language, use the box at the top right of the introduction page of the survey. Please send to your contact lists as appropriate.

Any questions can be directed to [email protected]. For more information, and to be kept up to date about upcoming capacity building training and resources for the marine and freshwater advocacy sector, follow PREP4BLUE on social media:
