The ocean needs your brain power

What?

On World Ocean Day, June 8, 2024 the first ever OceanLove Innovation Award will be given out to the most innovative and effective idea for protecting oceans.

With funding, media outreach and backing from experienced social entrepreneurs, the winning idea will then be supported in bringing it to fruition. In the following years,      the OceanLove InnovationAward will continue to mobilize more participants,     brainpower and inspiring results on an annual basis.

TURN THE TIDE

Climate change, overfishing, extinction of species, loss of biodiversity and all kinds of pollution (for instance plastics, ghost nets, oil spillage, deep-sea mining) are threatening our oceans and the life of future generations. Read more about the facts here.  

Don’t be shy

You don’t need money, high education or a huge social network for a good idea, only the guts to share your idea with us. Check out some inspiration and keep in mind that none of these people were rich when they had their first idea.
