Vision in Action

We make a tangible difference

 

We believe that the best way to ensure environmental justice for our oceans is to protect them from human abuse and exploitation. The best way to do that is by creating Marine Protected Areas through international consensus.

This requires a particular brand of diplomacy, for which our founder Lewis Pugh is renown.

Pugh uses the unifying power of sport to bridge divides and create a climate for negotiation and understanding. His access to global leaders and policy makers, dubbed 'Speedo diplomacy', ensures that he can influence decisions that make a difference.

As United Nations Patron of the Oceans, Lewis is uniquely positioned to be a voice for the Oceans. He is a passionate storyteller with access to world leaders, and the ability to make complex scientific issues accessible and understandable.

The most alarming changes are happening in the Poles, and the coral reefs, making these areas barometers of sea and climate change.
