Due to a lack of a real political will and a dearth of funding for state services, environmental education is virtually non-existent in Senegal. The same holds true for the media (radio, TV), which broadcasts only few reports on environmental issues.
Social communication: the basis of all our activities
In order to overcome these obstacles, Oceanium has acquired social expertise, the key to the success of our actions on the ground. Social communication activities are conducted across the country, and environmental education sessions are held in schools and institutions. In-house produced documentaries help us to create awareness. Our actions work toward the end goal of empowering people to implement their own applicable solutions and share them with others.
At Oceanium, we know about the rich traditional wisdom on how to manage the environment. Drawing on this wisdom, we have created a number of communication tools and educational materials, which we distribute large scale through our comprehensive logistics network.
Tools and materials include :
