CAMPAIGN FOR
A LIVING
CARIBBEAN SEA!

The  Oceans and Seas cover 80 per cent of the planet

 
 
GOAL 
 

As global policymakers have agreed to a new set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the Oceans Community is calling for the adoption of a standalone Oceans Goal.

An Oceans Goal would ensure the economic, social and political empowerment of the oceasns and ensure all aspects of national development, see the sea or ocean as active participants, champions and custodians of human welfare.

  • Over 200.000 fisher folk make a living from the Caribbean Sea 
  • Over 35 nations and territories share the Cariibbean Sea 
  • Over 1,000,000 people cruise on the Caribbean Sea
GET INVOLVED!

  • Show your support on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #CaribSea4Life
  • Create a Twibbon for your Twitter profile
JOIN THE DEBATE  

Do you agree that global policymakers should set a standalone Oceans Goal as a successor to the Millennium Development Goals?
