Ocean Unite works to secure a healthy future for the ocean. Their work involves uniting and activating the voices of people who know the ocean best.
If you are working on one of our priority areas and would like to become part of our intelligence network, we would love to hear from you – [email protected]
Definitive science and clear policy options point the way to what must be done to restore and protect marine life. But like many global challenges, the intelligence, science, policy knowledge and expertise is often fragmented and frequently does not reach the right ears.
Ocean Unite has been set up to assist with this unique challenge: to unite and amplify impactful voices to secure a healthy and vital ocean.
ONE PLANET, ONE OCEAN
The Ocean is like the Earth’s circulatory system. It provides us with food, fresh water, energy, medicine and the oxygen in every second breath we take.
Now it is in trouble.
Despite the efforts of many respected civil society organizations and advocates, there is still an unacceptable level of degradation. Increasing demand for resources, technological advances, overfishing, climate change, pollution, biodiversity and habitat loss, alongside weak high seas governance and inadequate law enforcement, are all contributing to its decline.
HIGH IMPACT ACTIONS AT MOMENTS THAT MATTER
Like many big challenges, the intelligence, science, policy knowledge and expertise to reverse this degradation exists but it is often fragmented, disparate and frequently does not reach the right ears at critical moments.
The good news is that awareness and concern are escalating and the health of the ocean is becoming a greater concern for citizens and their leaders around the world.
Our goal is to place the ocean at the forefront of political consciousness; to deepen the recognition that the health of our ocean must be recognised as one of the 21st century’s prevailing challenges and opportunities; and that it requires immediate attention.
By uniting these powerful voices Ocean Unite, will work to set in motion coordinated, high impact actions to get the key messages to the right people at the moments that matter.
The ocean can rebound. We need it to. Billions of us rely on it for food; half the oxygen we breathe, for transport, shipping, leisure, and spiritual solace.
