OUR MISSION

01

Create a space that acknowledges solving today's challenges and involves healing relationships among all aspects of nature and communities.

02

Acknowledge and celebrate accomplishments within our local communities, highlighting what has been achieved and what can still be done.

03

Empower individuals to instigate change and contribute to incremental progress, fostering a more equitable and sustainable ocean for tomorrow.

TIDES OF TOMORROW

The concept of change and progress is encapsulated in the symbolism of tides – a natural ebb and flow that mirrors the dynamic nature of the oceans. Tides serve as a metaphor for our continuous efforts to navigate and shape the future of our oceans through effective management, illustrating the evolving journey towards positive transformation and advancement for tomorrow. 

We break this idea into 3 subthemes: Sustainability, Equity, and Interdisciplinary.

SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability is upheld by three pillars—economy, environment, and people. As such our approach to managing a sustainable ocean must account for the holistic nature of sustainability itself. We challenge you to think collaboratively, broadening your horizons of what is required to address all aspects of sustainability and who needs to be involved to do so.  Turning Tides prioritizes dialogue between disciplines and organizations to advance the interconnectedness of ocean management and sustainability outcomes.
