Oceanic Global is a nonprofit that engages new audiences in ocean conservation. We tap into universal passions to raise awareness for issues impacting our oceans and to provide individual and industry solutions that drive positive change. Oceanic Global takes a uniquely creative approach to conservation, creating immersive experiences that engage local communities, amplify the efforts of synergistic groups, generate measurable impact and ignite global action.

To solve the issues impacting our ocean, we must broaden the conversation and inspire new audiences to take action. Oceanic Global focuses on providing millennial audiences with grassroots tools to create behavioral change, while working with industries to generate quantifiable impact. Our primary call-to-action is responsible consumption, which we approach at the individual, industry and policy levels.

Our three main pillars of action include grassroots activities, empowering millennials to embrace behavioral change and responsible consumption, engaging industry by creating custom programs for businesses to implement sustainable operating solutions with a focus on eliminating single-use plastics, which influences our policy reform efforts, and finally, our bi-annual city-by-city immersive experiences that generate measurable impact in the community, while raising awareness and igniting action for ocean conservation.
