The IMEV considers science outreach as one of its key missions, and its pole Culture Océan resumes main activities. These science-based outreach and mediation activities mainly address a non-scientific public. With the motto « Learn. Think. Create. Enable. Engage. Enjoy » they allow lifelong learning but especially focus on an ocean education for young people. A large spectrum of formats, multifaceted supports and specific approaches guarantee an adapted reach out at local, national and international level.

At present, she is also part of the IOC-UNESCO Ocean Literacy Group of Experts, where 20 members from diverse disciplines and countries work together to support and advise on how to make our societies more ocean literate in the context of the Ocean Decade (United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, 2021-2030).
