In the Community

Engaging the community – both the public and our peer groups – with our work is of critical importance in helping all to ‘Get Connected’ with our Blue Planet. We offer public lectures, film screenings, classroom presentations, and artistic displays reflecting work in the field. OO also sponsors and coordinates workshops and technical events amongst its peers. Contact us to schedule an event, or to suggest an event that we might get involved with.
