One Ocean Hub is an international program of research for sustainable development, working towards inclusive decision making whereby both people and the ocean can flourish.
The Hub aims to transform humanity’s response to the urgent challenges facing our ocean. It strives to influence decisions and practices that shape the future of the ocean by promoting sustainability, justice, and respectful relationship to Indigenous and local knowledge. Hub’s research seeks to bridge current disconnections in law, science, and society. It integrates governance frameworks to balance multiple ocean uses with conservation.
To achieve this, the Hub brings together ocean-reliant communities, artists, researchers, decision makers, civil society, and international organisations in the endeavour to uphold, support and promote different forms of knowledge as well as to facilitate learning from them. In so doing, the Hub’s team strives to empower communities – especially Indigenous peoples, small-scale fishers, women, and children – who are most reliant upon the ocean, to inform their decisions from multiple knowledge systems.
