Polar biologist Dr. Jen Freer introduces this new podcast - If Oceans Could Speak.
In this podcast we listen to the ocean through the stories of our guests who have shared their life with the sea around them. In this premiere series we focus on the Arctic Ocean.
Each week our conversations explore a different perspective of the Arctic Ocean, from the adventures of Thomas Wunderlich, Captain of the icebreaker ‘Polarstern’, to the musical journey of award-winning composer Lera Aurbach, which led to her acclaimed symphonic work ‘Arctica’.
Our guests reflect on issues surrounding climate change, sustainability, and equality, and share their hopes and concerns for the Arctic’s future. By viewing ocean change through this human lens, we hope to raise awareness of our collective connection to this frozen ocean.
This podcast is an output from The EU4Ocean Coalition for Ocean Literacy. Supported by the European Commission, this bottom-up, inclusive initiative aims at uniting the voices of Europeans to make the ocean a concern of everyone.
