Dear MEAM readers,

In October of last year, MEAM launched a new feature, ‘From the Archives’, that calls attention to past MEAM articles whose perspectives and insight remain relevant. This issue’s From the Archives article, “Getting business on board: Engaging the business community in ocean planning”, from the June-August 2015 issue offers great advice to ocean planners for working with ocean businesses. We encourage you to check out this article and take advantage of all of MEAM’s past articles providing practical advice for EBM and ocean planning.

And we are pleased to add another training opportunity incorporating marine spatial planning (MSP) into our MSP training compilation – the UGent Blue Growth Summer School being held from September 12-23, 2016, in Ostend, Belgium.

Best wishes for your work,
Sarah Carr
​MEAM Editor
