Ocean Unite was set up in 2015 as a Global Leadership Initiative by Virgin Unite and a group of key partners, united in their commitment to ocean conservation. Ocean Unite is now an independent charity registered in the United States.
Ocean Unite brings together a diverse group of conservationists, business leaders, philanthropies, and influential individuals who share a common concern: that the ocean and marine life – once thought to be infinite – now face a questionable future. Ocean Unite’s expert team is working to catalyze ocean regeneration by engaging and activating audiences around the world on the importance of the ocean, as well as innovating change and accelerating investment in building ocean health and resilience.
Ocean Unite’s 30x30 campaign is a call to action to safeguard at least 30% of the world’s ocean by 2030 through a network of highly protected marine areas where no destructive or extractive activities like fishing or mining can take place. At present only just under 3% of the world’s ocean is fully protected.
In this MYD Global episode we speak with Safiya Sawney, the Caribbean Policy Lead for Ocean Unite about the 30x30 program and how you can get involved.
