Securing the ocean’s well-being will have positive impacts across many global challenges we face today….Finding and elevating promising ocean innovations wherever they may be, connecting them and helping them scale is crucial to ensure we protect one of our planet’s most valuable assets.” World Economic Forum – The Davos Agenda
