Catalyzing Solutions for Ocean Health

The Ocean Visions Research Consortium

The Ocean Visions Acceleration & Impact Partners

Our Work

Ocean Visions brings together leading oceanographic research and academic institutions with private sector and public-interest organizations to design and advance solutions to the growing crisis in our ocean and climate.

Our work is focused around 3 Grand Challenges:

Reversing the climate crisis in the Ocean (ocean-based solutions to thermal and chemical stress – e.g. ocean-based carbon dioxide removal)

Building resilience of coastal systems and communities to climate impacts (e.g. solutions for sea level rise, extreme events, and changing habitats)

Building a climate-resilient aquatic food system (e.g. aquaculture, including microalgae and macroalgae, ocean-based low carbon diets)


We convene to share research and fast-track solutions.

Thanks to those of you who were able to join us at the Ocean Visions 2021 Summit! The Summit brought together a truly multisector community of more than 1,200 participants from 75+ countries—all of whom are working to advance ocean health solutions. Focal areas included ocean-based solutions to the climate crisis, equitable coastal solutions strategies for resilience and adaptation, building marine circular economies, the linkages between oceans and human health, and moving science and engineering from academia into sustainable businesses.
