Ocean Innovation Can't Afford To Be Siloed

The traditional ocean economy, known as the blue economy, has largely failed to support the development of solutions for the most urgent issues facing our blue planet; overfishing, sea-level rise, plasticization, pollution, and climate change. A lack of public funding for oceanographic research and development, a private sector dominated by the defense and fossil fuel industries, and a perpetuation of limited career paths in the marine sciences all present significant systemic barriers to ocean innovation. 

To reverse anthropogenic impact, it's necessary to drive local and regional social and economic development to collectively turn the tide on worldwide environmental decline. The greatest barriers we have to solving these problems aren’t technical, but are barriers to opportunity and implementation for people, solutions, and regions alike. Seaworthy Collective was established to overcome the systemic and socioeconomic roadblocks to ocean and climate impact.


Our Mission

Our Approach

Regenerative > Sustainable

Sustainability is only a step towards mitigating problems – it doesn’t solve them.
New Blue Economy needs to be regenerative. This means going beyond sustainability to build holistic systems of solutions instead of siloed incremental efforts.
