Social media campaign, co-ordinated by IIM (Marine Research Institute - CSIC) and ICM (Institut de Ciències del Mar-CSIC), to promote artistic expression in relation to the World Oceans Day and the current health emergency situation with the hashtag #ArelaDeMar (Galician) and its translations to other Iberian languages such as #AnhelDeMar (Catalan), #AnheloDeMar (Spanish), #AnseioDeMar (Portuguese) or #ItsasIrrika (Basque). The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of the importance of the ocean and, specifically, the conservation of its biodiversity.
We'll do so by encouraging the community to express, through any type of artistic expression their desires on social media on June 8th. Desires can be both from a personal point of view (what they desire to do in the ocean - all the ocean provides them with) or from a global point of view (what they desire the ocean to be like in the future, conservation-wise)
