  • Unveiling the quarries world: outreach and dissemination session in the framework of Fishtuna Festival 2023

    Gaglioti, Martina (Self Published, 2023)
    During the last edition of Fishtuna festival I had the opportunity to share some insights from field-based research conducted in the Aegadian Islands MPA in 2016-2017. This event shed light on local traditions and on the intangible heritage of the Aegadian Archipelago, focusing on traditions from multiple perspectives: art, tourism and traditional food. On this perspective, I briefly introduced through a video projection, an extract of the work performed in collaboration with the Aegadian Islands MPA and the University of Rome in 2016-2017 dedicated to another relevant aspect of the cultural heritage of this place: the quarries of the eastern portion of Favignana island.

  • Fins into the Water - Ocean Literacy in practice.

    Gaglioti, Martina; Pischedda, Arturo (Self Published, 2022)
    This manual is the final outcome of a field-based mission, performed in collaboration with different representatives of the SCUBA diving sector and acted on favour of different teaching agencies sharing the same standards at EU level (RSTC standards). This product aimed mainly at diving professionals and recreational divers is part of a personal commitment in the field of marine education and Ocean Literacy research. From this bottom-up conceived initiative an EU Erasmus+ project will be financed under the formal supervision of the Spanish National Agency. The outcome of the personal work is the result of a multiperspective field-based commitment and is part of a wider multidisciplinary approach to environmental research. The main goal of this work is the educational dimension in line with the purposes of the SDG14 and is conceived in line with the OL principles, at the basis of the wider outreach mission, promoted under the leading supervision of the IOC-UNESCO in the framework of the UN Decade 2021-2030 for Ocean Sciences. This work is an homage to a great diver and friends representing the most rewarding side of the italian diving sector.
  • Executive Summary of "Building the Blue Innovation Pipeline: Lessons Learned from the United States and Sweden".

    Jordan, Stephen; Pelingon, Patrizia-Faith; Endres, Erin (Institute for Sustainable Development, 2023)
    While there are many exciting innovations taking place in the “blue” (water-based) economy, the findings of this study indicate that more investment in research and development (R&D) is economically justified. In fact, blue R&D is underfunded by at least 112% compared to worldwide benchmarks. Even if an additional $30-50B (billion) in global funding for R&D reduced the future risks of water environments and increased the economic rewards of water-based industries by just 10%, this would still deliver $183B worth of economic benefit and enhanced environmental protection.
