The principles in the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (SSF Guidelines) can seem a bit technical to read and take to heart. But luckily, there are more ways to get acquainted with what the SSF Guidelines say. As of this month, each thematic chapter in the SSF Guidelines has a video explaining what steps should be taken to make small-scale fisheries more sustainable. The videos are well suited for using in trainings and workshops – both in classrooms and online.

FAO has also published a concise guide for workshop facilitators on how to use a 5-minute non-verbal video to discuss common challenges and possible solutions in small-scale fisheries.

And when physical meetings and workshops eventually become allowed again, an interactive card game is ready for use, encouraging players to “GO small-scale Fish!ng” and learn about the SSF Guidelines at the same time.
