Edinburgh Marine Network (EMN) is delighted to invite you to celebrate World Ocean Day with us on 8 June, when we will be hosting a review of our first year of activities, with a view to planning some existing marine-related events for the 2015/16 academic year. EMN was created a year ago to bring together academics and students at the University of Edinburgh with an interest in all types of marine issues, in order to share ideas, foster collaboration, and explore the different ways we view and value marine systemsCome and learn what we’ve been up to since our launch in summer 2014 and help us to decide on what we should be focussing during the next year. Amongst other things to look forward to, the MSc Marine Systems and Policy students will be sharing their experiences (and hopefully photos!) from their recent Maldives study trip and there will be some informal discussions about the future of the network, accompanied by tea, coffee and EMN birthday cake!
The celebration will be at 17.00-19.00 on Monday 8 June in the Old Library, Institute of Geography, Drummond Street. In order to plan for catering, we would be grateful if you could let us know whether you will be attending.
