Ocean SOS is a uniquely designed summit integrating both local and international officials, funders,
innovators, academics, and other stakeholders to create a global network among regenerative ocean initiatives with a focus on bridging next-gen approaches in technology, decentralization, community governance, blended funding, and cultural integration.

Our Goal is to facilitate working relationships between public benefit and private sector organizations-
