Ask yourself, how are you being affected by climate change?

The real side of climate change is personal, and affects you and people like you across the entire world. Science, facts, melting ice caps etc etc we know you superficially care about climate change because you visited this website. But for some of us that knowledge is not enough to warrant serious action and we are not prepared to alter or lifestyles or way of business.

Ocean Generation is curating, arts culture and news for you to be up to speed with immediate oceans and climate change topics. By bringing you the latest in the climate space, we will educate you about the now, how you are being affected and influence positive behavioural changes in your everyday decisions for a better planet.

On the ground, Ocean Generation is working with young people and tech on Small Island Developing States. By empowering communities most vulnerable to the effects of climate with digital skills and partnering with those creating new technologies to increase the lifespan and well being of our planet, islands can implement and create their own solutions to mitigate climate change.
