Learn more about the NNOCCI Network

NNOCCI is a collaborative effort led by the New England Aquarium with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, the FrameWorks Institute, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, the National Aquarium, Monterey Bay Aquarium, the New Knowledge Organization in partnership with Penn State University and the Ohio’s Center for Science and Industry.

With initial support from the National Science Foundation Climate Change Education Partnership program, NNOCCI is working to establish a national network of professionals who are skilled in communicating and translating climate and ocean science to broad public audiences.  Our goal is to change the nature of public conversation about issues of climate change to be inviting, empowering and solutions-oriented.
