HIGH IMPACT ACTIONS
AT KEY MOMENTS THAT MATTER
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.
Billions of us rely on it for food; half the oxygen we breathe, for transport, shipping, leisure, and spiritual solace.
By uniting 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.
If we take ambitious and urgent action NOW we give the ocean its best chance to regenerate and adapt in the long-term.
