Connections Between Research and the Public

Georgia Sea Grant works with students, resource managers, businesses, elected officials and the general population, translating complicated scientific concepts into information that can inform personal and community decisions. By increasing knowledge about our coastal resources, Georgia Sea Grant encourages the public to embrace coastal stewardship.

Georgia Sea Grant employs a diverse range of mechanisms to impart this information, such as workshops, one-on-one interactions, seminars, conferences and festivals. The organization’s parternship with University of Georgia Marine Extension Service (MAREX) broadens these points of contact. Georgia Sea Grant also utilizes the arts to help illustrate coastal processes, hosting musical performances, fine art exhibits, radio documentaries and book readings.
