I really don’t know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea (…) And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea – whether it is to sail or to watch it – we are going back from whence we came.
A healthy and sustainable ocean for life.
Ocean. Now! leverages the power of art to strengthen engagement for SDG 14 “Life below water” on all levels of society. Our goal is to rebuild a thriving marine ecosystem.
We strive to strengthen this engagement within all levels of society through the power of art. Art is ubiquitous as it transcends barriers of language and culture. We believe that art is thought-provoking and helps us develop a deeper connection with the world around us. It addresses the emotional brain of humans, which determines our actions. Through art, we hope to rebuild our connection to nature and the ocean.
We advocate for urgent action not only at an individual level but also at a systemic level. We engage with governments, institutions and the private sector to impact effective and accelerated change for the sake of our blue planet. We rely on scientific approaches to contribute to the goals under SDG 14 – “Life below water” as per the Paris Climate Agreement.
