We’re excited to announce that the student run Ocean Club will hold their next event Ocean Talks in Kunstarken KIT, Thursday Nov 22 at 18.00.

The topic for this Ocean Talks is:

SOS: Save Our Seas - Marine Conservation

For our next installment of the Ocean Talk series, we will be focusing
on the theme of marine conservation. The ocean is a crucial part of all
life on our planet and keeping it healthy is important for not only our
species, but the planet as a whole. We would like to invite you to an
evening which discusses the many ways in which we can work together to
Save Our Seas.

It is important to take a break from your exam reading, so take a well
deserved break with free pizza, interesting speakers and mingling with
other students!

The first speaker Courtney Waugh will talk about non-destructive research
methodologies of humpback whales and how they can be used as messengers
of antartic sea ice ecosystem variability.

Ocean Club is a student run initiative in NTNU

Who is NTNU Ocean Club?

NTNU Ocean Club work to engage students interested in the ocean, and its related academia and industries. This is our mission statement, and the underlying motivation in everything we do. We believe that utilizing the ocean (sustainably) is key to progressing economically, socially, and technologically in the future. To achieve this we have launched several events and products. To name a few:

• Ocean Challenge: A case competition where students fought to present the best solution to a current problem within the ocean industries.
• Ocean Talks: Our series of popular science talks. Themes ranging from deep sea mining to microplastic pollution.
• Ocean blog: Our newsletter where we write short articles about various topics we find interesting (and hope others do too) and update you on whats going on in the club.
• Conferences: We have helped arrange a number of conferences like the Aqua Nor Student Day 2017, and Ocean

In addition to this, we're also continuously expanding our network, and use this network to create shortcuts between students and exisiting opportunities.
We do this in various ways, e.x. by attending conferences and other events.
