Working together for the Ocean We Want

Join the Ocean Decade!

The Ocean Decade is for everyone. Sign up to our interactive platform – the Ocean Decade Network – to start taking action now!

Submit an Ocean Decade Activity

Got an idea for an Ocean Decade Activity?

Through the Ocean Decade Network you can submit an Activity idea for official endorsement, making it part of global efforts to create the ocean we want.

Decade Activities are standalone initiatives such as events, exhibitions, conferences, training opportunities, publications or products specially-developed for the Ocean Decade.

To be officially endorsed, Activities only need to show how they contribute to the Decade Challenges or to specific Programmes, Projects or Contributions.

Calls for Decade Actions

Got an idea for an Ocean Decade Programme, Project or Contribution?

Through the Ocean Decade Network you can participate in our regular Calls for Decade Actions.

While Activities are standalone initiatives, Programmes, Projects and Contributions offer the opportunity for a much higher positive impact in the Ocean Decade.

We will hold regular Calls for Decade Actions each year, and as a Member of the Ocean Decade Network, you will get full access to submit your ideas, and support to hone your ideas into the strongest possible proposal.

Join a Community of Practice
