The Future Ocean
Understanding the ocean — sustaining our future

The Future Ocean’s Mission is to use the results of multidisciplinary scientific research on the past and present ocean to predict the future of the Earth’s marine environment. This includes understanding changes to the past, on-going and future ocean as well as the interaction between society and the ocean in regard to marine resources, services and risks. This Mission carries with it an obligation to develop and assess scientifically-based global and regional ocean governance options, including their legal, economic and ethical aspects. The Cluster uses innovative and suitable means to share its findings with the international scientific community, stakeholders, decision makers, civil society and the public at large.
