Launch of Ocean oxygen publication
On 8 June 2023, World Ocean Day, EMB launched its Future Science Brief No. 10 “Ocean oxygen: The role of the Ocean in the oxygen we breathe and the threat of deoxygenation”. Ocean deoxygenation is increasing, with significant consequences for marine life and ultimately humans. This new EMB Future Science Brief highlights causes, impacts and mitigation strategies to tackle Ocean deoxygenation, and discusses whether “every second breath we take comes from the Ocean”. It ends with recommendations for policy, management, research and monitoring.

Launch of offshore renewable energy publication
Today EMB launches its Future Science Brief No. 9 “European offshore renewable energy: Towards a sustainable future”. To achieve the EU Green Deal vision, the amount of installed offshore renewable energy generating capability in European must increase 30-fold compared to current installed capacity. However, in the rush to develop and install new offshore renewable energy devices across the European sea basins, we cannot ignore the potential environmental and societal impacts that they could have. This document highlights which steps need to be taken to ensure that the expansion of this sector is managed sustainably, responsibly and equitably.

EMB opens call for 2 new Ambassadors
EMB is looking for two enthusiastic, engaged, and creative early career marine scientists to join their Ambassador Programme. The Ambassadors will play an important role in advocating for EMB and promoting the societal and political relevance of all aspects of the Ocean and marine sciences, including natural sciences, social sciences, policy, and humanities, within their own communities, and to a wide diversity of stakeholders in Europe. The two new Ambassadors will collaborate and liaise with our current Ambassadors and recent Alumni to share experiences and ideas and work on activities together.
