The next ten years will be crucial for life on our planet as we face threats such as climate change, biodiversity loss, resource overexploitation, and natural disasters. The Ocean provides many solutions to overcome these challenges and is intertwined in our daily lives in ways that are not always immediately evident. As part of EMB’s contribution to the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, EMB’s artist-in-residence programme ‘EMBracing the Ocean’ provides grants for creative individuals to inspire wide reaching societal change for Ocean sustainability. This programme contributes to the Ocean Decade societal challenge of an inspiring and engaging Ocean where society understands and values the Ocean in relation to human wellbeing and sustainable development.
