On 25 October, 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 the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Ocean and Climate Platform.

Ocean science, crucial 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 in the run-up to COP26, which starts on 31 October in Glasgow, Scotland: the ocean concerns us all and must be at the heart of the climate negotiations.

Sharing our scientific knowledge of the ocean

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 protect marine ecosystems and our society from climate change.

This scientific group, OneOceanScience, will be present at COP26 to remind the importance of ocean sciences on the international scene, notably during the day dedicated to the ocean on 5 November.
