Introduction Ocean Witness

Ocean Witness is a platform to elevate voices from those affected by changes in the ocean and to amplify good practices of those contributing to positive change. The stories shared on the platform, through videos, photos, and narratives, will make problems more tangible through first-hand accounts. They will create awareness about the importance of protecting oceans, not only for biodiversity goals but also for human well-being, e.g. food security and sustainable livelihoods. Ocean Witness will be a community building platform to bring together organizations, people who are dependent on healthy oceans, the general public and decision makers. Watch our first Ocean Witness story below! In this video, Emanuel from Peniche, Portugal shares his Ocean Witness story.
