WE HAVE A NEW NAME AND NEW LOOK!
WE’RE NOW HEIRS TO OUR OCEAN!
Why did we change from Oceans, plural, to Ocean, singular?
Because we wanted to be clear that we all share this one water system on planet Earth that is our life source and that connects us all.
Our new logo and name change reflect there is One Water System.
And we envision One Just World.
As we continue to grow and evolve, we want to express our gratitude to all our supporters who have made this transformation possible. Your support has been instrumental in our success and enables us to continue our vital work.DONATE
