As spring time is approaching in Europe, we will be seeing a lot more amazing pictures of nature again, for example of beaches!
Curious fact: these pictures are also used for research! In one of her research projects, EcoPodcasts expert Dr. Lucia Fanini has been monitoring social media pictures as a way to investigate environmental attitudes. This helps to adapt awareness strategies to the young generation and supports the development of effective communication of contents regarding conservation.
Lucia presented her research at the Commocean 2022 Conference, which is devoted to communication of oceanic science, with an audience composed of researchers, communication professionals, artists, all passionate about preserving the Oceans and sharing a range of tools, contexts, experiences for doing so.
