Part II of the ‘Women of the sea’ podcast expands insights on women’s knowledge of the ocean 

In the second part of the One Ocean Hub Podcast, Episode 4 ‘Women of the sea’, Knowledge Exchange Associate Milica Prokic continues the conversation on the entanglements of the ocean, ocean research and gender with two South African scholars and activists, Buhle Francis (Rhodes University, South Africa) and Aphiwe Moshani (University of Cape Town, South Africa).  

In the podcast, Buhle and Aphiwe, both Hub early-career researchers and winners of the British Council Scotland Earth Scholarships, continue to share insights on women’s knowledge of the ocean, their distinctive ocean-related practices and the challenges they face, as well as their own complex experiences as women conducting ocean research in the Global South.  

They further discus Buhle’s work  of undertaking pioneering collaborative research at the nexus of environmental justice, gender equality, ocean livelihoods, and inclusivity in ocean-related decision-making processes. Aphiwe shares more aspects of her work – as a trainee at the UN Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR). She discusses her work on co-developing the Learning Pathways on gender and the ocean, and  developing the learning pathway focusing on the ocean, culture and cultural heritage for the One Ocean Learn knowledge sharing platform that the Hub is co-developing with UNITAR. 

The episode is hosted by Hub’s Knowledge Exchange Associate Milica Prokic.
