Jul 6, 2021 | Latest News

Our Isles and Oceans are pleased to announce that we will be partnering with the United Nations Association Climate and Oceans!

As the UN launches a decade of research on ocean science, we intend on working alongside UNA Climate and Oceans as we highlight the importance of sustainable livelihoods for the next generation.

Gonzalo Alvarez, Chairman of the UNA Climate and Oceans – United Nations Association states

“UNA Climate and Oceans are extremely excited to begin this partnership with this new and unique project, Our Isles and Oceans.

We have shared goals and intend on using this new partnership to benefit young people and prepare them for the challenges they face regarding the climate and the sustainability of our oceans.

Young people have been particularly affected by lockdown and the pandemic with their future looking uncertain. We want to highlight the impact we can make and how we can work together to really make a difference as we move forward.”  

Our Isles and Oceans Founder, David Stewart Howitt, explains:

“In these challenging times, Our Isles and Oceans seeks to bring together the powerful forces of business and sport to offer an inspiring opportunity for the youth of today.

Working alongside the United Nations Association Climate and Oceans gives us a real opportunity to educate young people on the scientific side of our climate and we hope to build a stronger future where creating sustainable livelihoods is at the heart of our society’s focus.”

Watch this space as we bring together our Youth Ambassador programmes and develop events that aim to educate, unite and make real change.

Our Isles and Oceans and the UNA Climate and Oceans intend on educating young people on the science behind our oceans and the future of the planet. The organisations will work together to educate their ambassadors and to work with other sustainable associations in the hopes of building a brighter future for the next generation.
