NMEA’s mission is to make known the world of water both fresh and salt, and our annual conference brings together formal and informal marine educators from around the world to promote awareness and education of the global marine environment.
The conference draws 300-500 formal and informal educators from high schools, public aquariums, non-profit NGOs, and government agencies together for five days of learning, sharing, and networking. Scholarships are available.
