Today’s young people care passionately about action to safeguard the planet, especially mitigating the effects of climate change. Scientific understanding of the ocean's responses to the many anthropogenic pressures is fundamental in achieving this. Therefore, we have worked with marine scientists from universities and science institutes to create a programme based on solutions to marine based environmental challenges.
Sea The Future - Ocean Science
Many young people who sail with us have never even visited the coast, let alone sailed or seen the life below the waves. For others we will expand and increase on current knowledge, by providing Pelican as a research platform or work experience placement for those who are passionate about our oceans
Our Ocean Science syllabus is mapped to the national curriculum but in based upon practical research that is not possible in a classroom. It allows young people to work directly with industry experts, using specialised equipment to carry out engaging, exciting and scientifically accurate research; data from which will be distributed for use in studies on climate change and pollution
The United Nations have declared a Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, running from 2021 to 2030. By encouraging the next generation of marine biologists, oceanographers, environmental scientists and leaders in change, we plan to feed the worldwide community. Over the next 10 years, this generation will have the passion, skills, expertise and technology to sustain the oceans we need for the future we want.
