We simplify ocean knowledge
80% of youth are concerned about climate change and its effects on ocean. However, only 22% are aware of the role ocean plays in mitigation. These numbers underline how little people know about our ocean. Seaweed First aims to bridge that gap and allow them to become ocean stewards.
What we do
We provide action-driven exercises for business schools and corporates with the objective of helping people understand how all ocean topics are linked and how business can support ocean conservation.
Information is key to turning potential into actual profit. The scarcity of data and quality analytical content currently hampers the understanding of ocean topics and disabling them from taking action.
Interactive tools that engage the users and demystify complex ocean topics.
Seaweed Sustainability Index
We are developing the first multidisciplinary composite indicator designed to establish international quality norms in the seaweed value chain. Drawing on the “comply or explain” model of the financial industry, the index is composed of core mandatory principles and five recommended pillars (on which the farms are assessed).
We aim to inspire and create positive change for the ocean.
