The IIM-CSIC challenges its researchers to explain ‘Why is your work green?’ in a short video (1’máx.) for social media. Rules: no technical words and showing a green element they use as the key of the explanation. The communication campaign is based on these videos and aimed at a general public. It addresses how marine research can contribute to protect, not only the ocean and its biodiversity, but the environment, and to explore ways for the nature-society interactions to be more sustainable.
