What is the Marine CoLAB?

The Marine CoLAB is a collaboration of marine and related NGOs working together to put value at the heart of shaping solutions for our ocean. The CoLAB aims to increase collaborative action and explore how to communicate why the ocean matters more effectively.

The collaboration is guided by nine organisations and encompasses a broad community of actors across the marine environment.

Our Experiments

We want to build a more ocean friendly society where people share an understanding of our inextricable connection with the ocean and act to safeguard all the benefits it provides.

We believe that developing a shared appreciation of the value of the ocean in all its forms, will deliver better outcomes for people and planet.

Our experiments test our values based, experimental and collaborative approach and are grounded in systems thinking.
