2021 marks the beginning of the Decade of Ocean Science, proclaimed by the United Nations, which aims to involve new generations so that they become aware of the importance of marine ecosystems and how to protect them.

Knowing and understanding how the ocean affects us and how we affect the ocean is critical to living and behaving sustainably.
