Endorsed as UN Ocean Decade activity

The United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, better known as the Ocean Decade, is a shared global effort that builds on decades of achievements in ocean science.

We are delighted that our plans and activities for Free Range Ocean have been endorsed by the Ocean Decade today - on the eve of our our voyage it's a real honour to be recognised for our mission to use adventure sailing, citizen science and storytelling to inspire action for a healthy ocean among boating and coastal communities.

The vision of the Ocean Decade is 'The science we need for the ocean we want', and we look forward to supporting transformative ocean science solutions for sustainable development, connecting people and our ocean over the coming weeks, months, years!

During our journey we plan to do three things...


1) To use FREERANGER as a testbed and showcase for innovative and accessible research-based or green-operational technologies,

2) to contribute to, and enable other boaters to take part in, the smorgasbord of citizen science projects around the world that urgently need support from sea-going folk, and

3) to host local early-career researchers and communicators in the countries we visit with a Freerange Fellowship programme that gives them career-propelling firsthand field experience, something that is often a barrier to pursuing a career in this important work.


The end goal?


To inform, inspire and enable others to have their own positive impact on our ocean with an 'everyone, and every action counts' philosophy.

Are we missing any? Let us know so we can add them.

Thanks to all who are helping us to bring this project to life!

Larissa, Duncan, Eden and Skye!


ffare tangible initiatives and endeavors that will be identified, implemented and supported by a wide range of partners throughout the Decade.
