The Ocean is the most important and one of the least understood ecosystems on Earth. By joining forces, we can take collective action. We can improve environmental education and tackle Ocean threats through Science and Storytelling.  

COLLABORATE FOR CHANGE

THE OCEAN SUPPORTS ALL LIFE. PROTECTING IT SHOULD BE PART OF OURS 

subscribe-for-Ocean-science (1)

The most effective way to ensure the health of our Ocean is to introduce young people to it, educate them about its importance, and empower them to take action to protect it. 

 

That’s what we do.

 

Partnering with us supports the development of our UNESCO-endorsed youth programmes and enables our work translating complex Ocean science into understandable content and actions that everyone can use to live more sustainably. 

OUR IMPACT

WE’RE ENABLING AN OCEAN POSITIVE FUTURE. 

collaborations-ocean-generation (1)

We’ve been experts on Ocean threats since 2009. In 2016, our award-winning documentary ‘A Plastic Ocean’ was named by Sir David Attenborough as
“one of the most important films of our time.”
 

 

But in this decade – the UN’s Ocean Decade – we’re thinking bigger. Bolder.

We need millions of people understanding that our Ocean is a solution
to some of the world’s biggest problems.
 

 

By 2030, we will engage
50 million people
in Ocean action.
