World Ocean Forum

WORLD OCEAN FORUM invites fresh ideas, new solutions, provocative and imaginative conversations about the future of the ocean, and links unexpected people with unexpected ideas. It is a place for key ocean voices: professionals and Citizens of the Ocean alike, to contribute to an active forum of opinion, ideas, and proposals for change in ocean policy and action worldwide. We are now accepting submissions to the FORUM. To inquire about becoming a contributing writer, please contact us at
