It is part of a series of animations produced in the H2020 project ResponSEAble. It aims to illustrate how the project’s approach to knowledge helps understanding human-ocean relations as basis to become responsible for our oceans, in particular: (a) the policies and human activities (Drivers) that put Pressures on marine ecosystems; (b) the problems that these pressures cause for the quality (Status) of marine ecosystems, and for the ecology and the fauna and flora and human activities that depends from these ecosystems (Impacts and Wellbeing); and (c) the actions and policies that can be proposed for solving the problems (Responses).
Being an illustration of the proposed approach, the cartoon presents the issues in a caricaturist manner. By no means, the cartoon provides the full picture of reality, an element to keep in mind when displaying the cartoon to different audiences.
