Initial OOMF announcement and details
The One Ocean Marine Forum (OOMF) is an international marine education initiative planned to occur in Hawaii in July 2005. This project is the result of long-time associations between members of Marine Education Society of Australasia (MESA) and the National Marine Educators Association (NMEA) in North America.
There have been many cross cultural visits over recent years exposing the challenges in knowledge and resource sharing. The Forum, which will be the first formal international meeting of marine educators, is seen as the next logical step in this process.
