— letter from the founder —

Dear readers,

The oceans are the great connector of humanity. 90% of the world’s goods are transported by sea. 50% of all human population lives within 200 km of the coast, and half of all oxygen we breathe is generated by the oceans.

Throughout history the oceans have enticed us with a call for adventure. Over eons, they’ve been used for: fisheries, security, sports, entertainment, transportation, scientific research, and recreation. As our dependence grows — and becomes more apparent — we see more attention on the oceans from all over the world + by all walks of life.

Ocean Planet conference is a unique event. Designed for curious minds who might not be experts in aquatic fields — but feel excited about this frontier. We welcome all participants ranging from students to professionals.

We aim to create an unforgettable experience — bringing you closer to our oceans. Please join us! We’ll connect with foremost leaders from: ocean sciences, ocean engineering, ocean resources, ocean environment, and ocean tech. We’ll celebrate the best developments in our blue frontier.

I look forward to meeting you,
Armin T. Ellis PhD
