The future offers valuable opportunities to address our collective challenges and create a better and more sustainable future. Partnerships and joint initiatives meet this need, but the organisational context in which they take place can be an impediment to real change and decisive action, which are necessary to solve collective problems effectively.
We believe that progress and innovation can be accelerated by forming open and action-oriented communities around common ambitions, independent of the context of existing organisations. This creates an environment with room for initiative and responsibility. This autonomous environment is a prerequisite for maximising the human potential necessary to meet our collective challenges.
We want to demonstrate that the OceansX way to forming inspiring and action-oriented communities around collective challenges leads to accelerated and new ways of innovation, co-creation and sustainable solutions.
To realise this, OceansX engages in projects where the common ambitions are the starting point. For each project, connections are made that are useful and necessary to achieve impact. It is not organisational procedures, interests and goals that are leading, but a joint commitment to the sustainable solution of collective challenges.
