For about ten years, the Laboratoire d’Océanographie de Villefranche (LOV) has been involved in science outreach, which has become one of its missions.

Accompanied by the science outreach team of the Institut de la Mer de Villefranche (IMEV), the LOV staff shares its current research in oceanography with all those interested.

Children and adults can thus develop a better understanding of the ocean and its associated issues in a context of environmental change.

By using numerous means of science outreach and communication, by relying on various projects, actions and events, the LOV addresses various audiences at the national and international level.

In this context, both digital and face-to-face approaches have their place. Educational programs such as mon océan & moi, adopt a float, and «The Ocean – Frontiers for Young Minds » collection are thus designed to contribute to Ocean Literacy and the United Nations “Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development” (2021-2030).
