Today is World Oceans Day. This is an important day to celebrate our precious oceans, but it's also a time for us to unite to help protect them.
The oceans are ailing. Overfishing, pollution and negligence is putting immense pressure on the marine world. Without urgent help, it will be too late to turn the tide. To continue enjoying the oceans, we need to work together to safeguard them. Our industry, with its innate connection to the water, is in a unique strategic position to take action and help shape a better future.
Getting to grips with the issues we face
We need to fully understand a problem before we can solve it. That’s why ocean literacy is a big part of Water Revolution Foundation’s work. Ocean literacy ensures that we all understand our influence on the oceans and similarly, the ocean’s influence on us. It is influenced and guided by ocean literacy frameworks at the highest scientific levels, including the United Nations and UNESCO, so that we can arm our industry with the knowledge needed to make a real change.
Our vision for ocean conservation
At Water Revolution Foundation, the team understands that the challenges facing our oceans are also the challenges of our own industry. Alongside their efforts to reduce the footprint of the superyacht industry, they recognise that for a well-rounded approach, we must also directly invest in conservation efforts.
By following established frameworks and working closely with the scientific community, Water Revolution Foundation will support the oceans at the highest possible level, taking care to invest in the initiatives that will truly make a difference. This is the only way we can create true change.
They are connectors, directing support to the most relevant and effective projects. Their inaugural collection of conservation projects, all given the scientific seal of approval, will be launched later this year. We will keep you updated as they move through the selection process and work together towards a sustainable future.
