On 25 October 2021, Ifremer, CNRS and IRD (Institut de Recherche pour le Développement) launched a digital world tour of ocean and climate sciences, called OneOceanScience, with the support of Thomas Pesquet but also of the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Ocean and Climate Platform.
Ocean science, essential for action
Scientists from around the world have come together and are participating in this campaign. Together they explain why ocean science is essential to better understand and protect the ocean – “Why ocean science matters? The scientific community is making an urgent appeal on the sidelines of COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland: the ocean concerns us all and must be at the heart of the climate negotiations.

Sharing our ocean science
The OneOceanScience campaign brings together 37 scientists from 33 different countries, who speak out in a series of short videos.
They explain the importance of ocean science in understanding our environment and highlight the relationship between the ocean and climate.
They present their work and solutions to better preserve marine ecosystems and our society in the face of climate change.
This scientific collective OneOceanScience was present at COP26 to remind the importance of ocean sciences on the international scene.
