COUSTEAU and EMBLAS Project teamed up for “State of the Black Sea” Exhibition

COUSTEAU teamed up with the “EMBLAS Plus” project to create an exhibition consisting of 5 infographics in the form of panels. The EMBLAS Plus project is funded by the European Union and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).

The main objective of this project is to help improve the protection of the Black Sea by collecting data. From there the aim is to establish a general consensus on the state of the Black Sea and carry out local actions which raise the awareness of the public and decision makers.

A press conference was held on July 29th 2019 on the topic “Our Black Sea: new monitoring results for decisions”. It summarized the results of field surveys in the Black Sea collected and analyzed by the project during 2017-2019 using the latest monitoring equipment and techniques and following the EU standards.

COUSTEAU helped with the visual representation of data providing our expertise in communication by producing high quality infographics.

The exhibition took place in 2 cities bordering the Black Sea: Odessa in Ukraine and Batumi in Georgia.

Here is a panel summarizing the topics mentioned in the series of infographics. We will be sharing each infographic individually on our website and our social networks.

To accompany this series of infographics we will be sharing the Cousteau film series on the Danube. The Danube is Europe’s second longest river and after numerous alliances reaches the Black Sea 2880 km away from its source in the Black Forest.

Join us this weekend for the first film in the series Danube : the curtain rises.

You can follow Cousteau on our social networks to keep up to date with all the latest Cousteau news, films and programs.
