The Week in Review is published on our blog every Friday. We optimize post time so that it can be read during the morning or afternoon commute. The Week in Review post is segmented, each portion containing an individual news story. Each summary is about four sentences long, contains an illustrating photograph, and a hyperlink where interested readers can dive in to discover more details. The Week in Review is then posted on all our social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin, SCUBABoard, Snapchat) We also promote this body of work by sharing it with our strategic partners so they can disseminate it to their networks.
The Week in Review is an essential weekly read which makes it possible for even the busiest person to stay abreast of all the breaking ocean news.
What Problem Are We Trying to Solve?
Our wired world has left many people feeling over-scheduled, leaving little time to keep up with critical issues, including the state of the oceans. Lack of time to seek out important ocean information can result in lack of knowledge, indifference, and inaction. A poorly informed population will not push back against bad policy and dangerous decisions by local, national, and international leaders.
How are we solving this problem?
Every week the Sea Save Foundation team researches and vets the critical stories from the last seven days. We use only reliable news or primary sources. We weave the critical facts into a few tight sentences and present this “Week in Review” to our audience via our blog and social media platforms. By investing a few minutes each week, readers can stay abreast of current scientific breakthroughs, challenges, and advocacy efforts and incorporate this information into their understanding of the ocean. People want to do the right thing and want to protect oceans; we arm them with the information they need to best further these efforts. An informed public will choose to support sound policy that promises secure ocean futures.
Knowledge Translation – Often scientists write in a language understandable only by their colleagues. We break down stories published in peer-reviewed journals and reputable publications in a way that is understandable and interesting to the lay reader. We write entries using language that captivates and engages our readers. Information can contribute to knowledge and knowledge can result in action to protect our oceans.
