Who are we ?

We are an international association

working to raise public awareness about the importance of the Ocean for humanity and about the impact that our everyday actions can have on the marine environment.

The association brings together organisations involved in public outreach and which are committed to taking action. This includes aquariums, museums, science centres educational charities and non-governmental institutions and organisations.

By participating in the Network organisations operating at local community level can showcase their initiatives and inspire others around the world.

By the same token, by acting through local organisations the World Ocean Network is able to carry out its science outreach campaigns, reaching millions of people, raising public awareness and disseminating information about ocean preservation to a broad audience.

World Ocean Network is a non profit organisation (AISBL) registered under Belgian law.
