The Okeanos Explorer 2013 field season is over and the ship is in port. Stay tuned for more exploration in 2014! Check out their video playlist for archive highlights of past trips.
Welcome to OUR OCEAN SPACE, a web-based network for exchange of projects, art, audio-visual presentations, and other imaginative formats, created and uploaded by young Citizens of the Ocean to share with their counterparts worldwide. Teachers and students are invited to share their ocean-related projects with other classrooms, linking together young people through their understanding and interpretation of ocean systems.
Create and account/log in to submit projects and presentations in PowerPoint format, upload images to photo galleries, and link to video projects on YouTube. Each project will be marked as a DRAFT and will be posted to the site once it is reviewed by the W2O Editor for appropriate content. It is the responsibility of those submitting material to address copyright clearance for photographs, music, and other literary and graphic materials.

People rely on the ocean to provide jobs with steady wages and stable economies for coastal communities worldwide. The jobs and revenue produced from marine-related industries directly benefit those who are employed, but also have substantial indirect value for community identity, tax revenue, and other related economic and social impacts of a stable coastal economy.
