In 2016 Nicola Bridge our Head of Ocean Advocacy and Engagement alongside Stephen King from the Wild Network and Sue Ranger from the Marine Conservation Society came together and created We Are Ocean.
We are Ocean is a collective of organisations, aligned with shared objectives of increasing Ocean Literacy and effective collaboration. In accelerating Ocean Literacy we will live in a society that understands the importance of the ocean to humankind, can talk about the ocean in a meaningful way and are able to make informed and responsible decisions regarding the ocean and its resources.
Our first activation as a collective was to transform World Ocean Day to be like World Book day in schools across the globe. Since it’s first year, World Ocean Day for Schools has grown and we are able to engage with thousands of pupils all over the World!
We come together for events, Ocean hacks, networking and more. Take a look at this film produced and funded by the fantastic Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation all about our work so far.
