Our planet can sustain life because of one universally unique feature: the ocean. It produces half the oxygen we breathe, nourishes our bodies with food and our minds with inspiration, and shapes our weather and climate. But not only are marine ecosystems under attack, they’re woefully underexplored and poorly understood. This session highlights the creative and passionate leaders seeking to better understand the role the ocean and its undiscovered inhabitants play in the global carbon cycle. By creating movements, leveraging youth, and supporting innovation and technology, today’s ocean champions have the potential to restore health to the enigmatic force that covers two-thirds of our planet.
