There are seven billion stakeholders for the oceans. They have common as well as conflicting interests.
Switzerland for the Oceans brings diverse influencers together so that individuals and organisations can explore innovation; forge new and practical solutions; and collaborate to make better use of shared knowledge and resources.

Operating without bias is central to what we do.
Our Ocean Café is a space where people can meet, learn and share. It's the essential forum for everyone who cares about Ocean Vitality.
It is open to diverse and contrasting interests and can unlock opportunities for resolution and growth.
