The Decade of Ocean Empathy is inspired by the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development and brings human elements like empathy, communication, and creative problem-solving into marine science and conservation to generate ocean connection and stewardship.

Led by 501c3 non-profit The Hydrous, the Decade of Ocean Empathy leverages human-centered design, learning science, and emerging technologies to contribute to Decade Outcomes 6: an accessible ocean and 7: an inspiring and engaging ocean. Objectives of this programme are to 1) create – and build capacity for – immersive virtual ocean media, 2) lead world-class research on ocean learning and literacy, and 3) build and foster an international community of multidisciplinary ocean solutionist fellows.
