By tapping into women’s profound emotional connection with the ocean, this project empowers women by creating a virtual hub that unites science and sentiment on an international platform.

This platform will not only facilitate cross-border collaborations, provide access to opportunities, and facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experience, but will also amplify the voices of women whose deep affinity for the ocean drives them to champion the science and action required for its preservation. Through compelling documentaries, campaigns, and narratives, the project intertwines emotion and action and will use personal stories to kindle a collective commitment to safeguard our ocean and to advance efforts towards achieving gender equity in maritime and ocean sectors. This project aims to empower women in oceanic careers and inspire the next generation of ocean leaders to broaden perspectives and drives tangible change.
