Ocean Exchange

On 5 December 2017, the United Nations declared that a Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development would be held from 2021 to 2030. The Ocean Decade provides a common framework to ensure that ocean science can fully support countries to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

We are very pleased to receive this week Millicent Pitts, the executive director of The Ocean Exchange ™️, one of the many ongoing projects.

The Ocean Exchange ™️ was started 10 years ago: it is an optimistic, forward looking and solutions oriented ecosystem builder with the sole mission to help advance the adoption of innovative solutions for healthy oceans & resilient and sustainable coastal systems.

This summer, they have 4 awards for a total grant of $235,000, with an open call for solutions  helping ocean preservation as well as decarbonization of the maritime transport.
