We bring the ocean to the people.
to engage diverse communities in ocean conservation and climate action through shared, immersive learning experiences.
We have less than 10 years to solve climate change.
Climate change is a global problem that needs all hands on deck. We're running out of time, and we've got a lot of work to do. We need to work together to solve it. We need collective inspiration, and coordinated action.
Our ocean is one of our greatest allies in that fight.
Our ocean regulates the weather, provides millions of tons of food, and enables life to exist on this planet. It has also been soaking up much of our extra CO2 ,and storing most of our extra heat. We need to keep the ocean healthy in order to survive climate change.
We need to empower more communities to explore, fall in love with, and protect the ocean. We need to make ocean research and conservation more accessible, equitable, and diverse. To do that, we must involve more communities in creating and sharing solutions.
OceanLab connects communities with the ocean.
We create shared spaces that foster engaging, solutions-oriented conversations with the public about climate change and ocean conservation.
We're a sandbox for experimenting with what moves people to protect the ocean and climate. We collaborate with scientists, educators, artists, community leaders, and partner organizations to create meaningful and innovative experiences.
Here are some examples of the things we've created, are actively working on, and are dreaming up:
