Understand the story of our oceans.
Without the oceans, there won’t be any life. 50 percent of our oxygen is generated by the ocean, every second breath we take. The ocean is our refuge, it brings us jobs, food and joy whenever we need it. But the ocean has to pay for this generosity: exploitation, overfishing, pollution, coral bleaching – just to name a few – are increasingly designing the future of our oceans. This semester program will help you to understand the scope of the oceans’ damage and how researches and small conservation initiatives are working towards sustainable solutions.
