Our mission is to connect the world's oceans to power a more sustainable future.
Why oceans?
The oceans cover over 70% of the Earth’s surface. They drive our weather, power global trade, and are the backbone of coastal communities worldwide. By connecting the world’s oceans, we empower science, society, and industry to be stewards for the sea, and help make a more sustainable future possible for our planet.
