Exhibition - Keepers of the sea: women wisdom for science

Add to Calendar 2021-02-11 14:00:00 2021-03-08 23:00:00 Exhibition - Keepers of the sea: women wisdom for science In this virtual exhibition prepared for the JRC’s Portuguese Semester you will be guided through the Keepers of the sea project. You will learn about the new roles the women from the fishing community have now on their communities for seagrass meadows conservation. Seagrass meadows offer us a number of ecosystem services: a set of natural processes which directly or indirectly contribute to human well-being. Besides being important nursery habitats that supports biodiversity, coastal communities and the fishing economy (among a lot of other things!), seagrass also sequester and store high amounts of carbon in their biomass and sediment, which makes them crucial ecosystems in strategies to combat the climate crisis.
