At the Ocean Conservation Trust we love the Ocean, and want as many people as possible to love it, too.
Through our own experience, and as supported by a growing body of evidence, we know that telling people facts and science about the Ocean isn’t enough to make them want to change their behaviours to benefit it. Positive experiences and connection with the Ocean are the things that build life-long support for conservation, and that’s what Think Ocean is all about.
The more people experience and connect with the Ocean, the more they may begin to love, value and appreciate it – and it is often then that they will be ready to change.
Too few people are talking about the Ocean…
Despite the Ocean being vitally important for sustaining all life, its presence in the mainstream media and on the political stage is lacking. We want to bring the Ocean to the forefront of people’s minds, inspiring them to connect with it and to #ThinkOcean in their everyday lives.
The Ocean is in everything you do – from taking a shower to going to the supermarket. Whatever you do and wherever you are, you are connected to it – just as it is to you. We rely on it, and everything we do affects it, just as it affects us, every single day.
It’s time we all started to #ThinkOcean – because it’s amazing, exhilarating, exciting – but also, because it’s too important not to.
