It is clear that there needs to be more understanding about our connection to the ocean and its connection to us.

This report shares key findings, with examples of inspiration and possibility and suggests ideas and approaches with potential to accelerate an ocean literate culture.

Key Takeaways

  • 90% of Wild Labs survey (UK) said that the UK was ’not very’ ocean literate – with the predominant reason being that it’s out of sight, out of mind
  • Plastic can be the gateway into ocean connection & literacy
  • Ocean literacy is a story of connection – Water, Wellbeing, Oxygen, Pollution, Food & Climate/Weather
  • Ocean solutions start on land – We need new stories, new language, ocean literate cities, collaborations, experiences & education approaches
