THE SEA AMONG US PROJECT
The Voices of Nature Society plans to create The Sea Among Us Project: an educational initiative focussing on ocean literacy, and conservation of wild Pacific salmon, the Salish Sea and the open ocean.
PHILOSOPHY: The project weaves together four points of view: Western ocean science; Indigenous traditional ecological knowledge and practices; relationality with the ocean--intercultural, interspecies, sustainable ecological and economic systems; and the essential role music plays in synthesizing knowledge and transforming it into practice.
METHODS: The activities emanating from this hub include
production of educational materials, instructional services
and community events.
These three activities are organized in seven components:
1. SONG: The Sea Among Us Parts 1 & 2
2. EDUCATORS’ HANDBOOK
3. MUSIC-SCIENCE SHORT FILM
4. ONLINE LEARNING CENTRE
5. TEACHERS’ PRO-D WORKSHOP
6. SCHOOL MUSIC PROGRAM
7. COMMUNITY CONCERT
Our goal is to provide schools throughout BC and North America with a package of music-based resources that allows them to mount their own programs and productions about ocean literacy, and human relationships with the ocean.
