. share information about sources related to education,

. exchange ideas and knowledge in new science teaching tools,

. exchange experience in addressing the media,

. foster general networking with all stakeholders,

. exchange about the outreach of education and

. support ECS to address educational questions.

*Summary:*After the workshops in Setubal, 2013, Liège in 2014 and on 
Malta 2015 we want to continue to share educational and outreaching 
experiences of communicating marine mammal science to schools and to the 
general public. These experiences can be educational programs that 
support school curricula, pedagogical outreach materials such as books, 
videos, kits, activities and exhibitions. As in recent years we will 
focus on the theme of the conference: "Into the Deep: Research and 
Conservation on Oceanic Marine Mammals". For an introductionary round 
during the workshop we would kindly ask all the participants -- if 
applicable - to prepare 1-2 powerpoint slides showing their involvement 
in education and present it to the workshop participants during a max. 
of 2-3 minutes.

At the end of the introductionary round we will run a short 
brainstorming session where the participants have the opportunity to 
give some input on what they want to get out of the workshop. The 
workshop is open to researchers, educators, science teachers, students 
and to the media and will allow a maximum of 25 participants.
