Join the Sea Change Project

The Sea Change project and CIIMAR invites you to take simple steps towards protecting our ocean by joining the new “Our Ocean, Our Health” campaign to raise awareness of the interconnectedness of ocean and human health.

“Our Ocean, Our Health” emphasises the vital role of the ocean in making life on Earth possible. Our ocean provides us with oxygen, it regulates our climate and produces over 140 million tons of food each year. But human activity and our way of life is affecting the ocean’s health. If we don’t take care of the ocean, we endanger our own survival.

You can help to spread the word about the ocean’s life-giving vitality by sharing Sea Change’s new video, which highlights the ocean’s contribution to the oxygen we breathe. Watch “Our Ocean Our Oxygen” on the Sea Change website.

Sea Change encourages you to take action by pledging to make a “sea change” in your daily behaviour at  and sharing your commitment online using #OurOceanOurHealth. Even by making small changes in our activities, together we can achieve big results to tackle the marine issues of plastic debris, acidification, pollution and depletion of fish stocks.

Sea Change is an EU Horizon 2020-funded project which aims to raise European citizens’ awareness of the intrinsic links between ocean and human health, and to empower us, as “Ocean Literate” citizens, to take direct and sustainable action towards a healthy ocean, healthy communities and ultimately a healthy planet. CIIMAR is one of the partners.
