To celebrate World Oceans Day on 8 June, we want to hear your creative ideas about the science and technology needed to ensure healthy and sustainable future oceans.

The ocean covers more than two thirds of our planet. It affects almost all aspects of our daily lives – from our weather and climate, through to our food and well-being.

Our oceans are highly diverse with many unique components - vast and mysterious abyssal canyons and seamounts, sprawling coral reefs and seagrass meadows, colourful playgrounds for fish and charismatic marine megafauna.

Scientific research is essential to understanding our oceans, how they respond to pressures, and how they will continue to maintain life, culture and the economy in the future.

We want to hear your best idea

This competition is now closed.

Winners will be announced on World Oceans Day, 8 June 2020.

Good luck!
