Empowering Ocean Changemakers

Solutions for ocean pollution and ocean health can be challenging to implement if there is little public engagement on the issues. The best results come from those who passionately work to protect what they love, and often have had first-hand experiences. Through a unique platform combining adventure and science, eXXpedition creates a network of inspired leaders to engage their communities in cultivating solutions and taking action that results in less pollution in our ocean. eXXpedition developed an Ambassador Community through which to drive a diverse mix of local actions on policy change, solution innovation and implementation, citizen science, and awareness-raising on the ground around the world.

The SHiFT method is designed to help people find their role in solving the world’s most pressing issues and has been adapted into a digital platform where users navigate hundreds of solutions to take action and inspire others to follow. The SHiFT Community Hub also facilitates connections, weekly live sessions led by experts, citizen science for COVID-19 plastic impact monitoring, and tools to really drive change back on land and inspire solutions for the oceans.
