Our Approach

Who We Are

Ocean Visions is a non-profit organization that catalyzes innovation at the intersection of the ocean and climate crises. We facilitate multisector collaborations from within our Network and beyond, working with leading research institutions, the private sector, and public-interest organizations to fully explore and advance responsible and effective ocean-based climate solutions. In short, we work to stabilize the climate and restore ocean health.

Our Vision

Our vision is of a healthy and regenerated ocean where human ingenuity and innovation are applied to counter and reverse the existential threats facing the ocean.

How We Work

At the center of a robust network of organizations, Ocean Visions works as a catalyst, seeking to marshal and activate the intellectual and physical resources of our Network partners and others to identify, develop, test, and advance solutions across multiple fronts.

Our Goals

Build momentum and action to address the existential threats to the ocean created by global climate disruption.

Support prolific imagination, innovation, development, and demonstration of solutions that can address and hopefully exceed the scale and pace of negative change in the ocean.

Build and engage a vibrant and diverse global community of “solvers” and “makers” committed and supported to tackling and solving these big ocean problems.

Our Values

Ocean Visions was created from recognition of the need for innovative and durable solutions at the ocean-climate nexus. We create meaningful impact through work that centers scientific integrity, collaboration, creativity and boldness, and humility.
