About us


At Ocean Generation, we combine our decade-long experience of science and storytelling with the fresh energy of a youth collective. Our Netflix documentary “A Plastic Ocean” has driven mass awareness about plastic pollution and has been praised by Sir David Attenborough as “one of the most important films of our time”. We are now focusing on Ocean Action. At Ocean Generation, we are growing an inclusive global movement to tackle a wide range of Ocean threats and influence policy change, together.


We see a world where the Ocean is freed from human threats within a generation. Our ultimate goal is to restore a healthy relationship between humanity and the Ocean. Because as the first generation to deeply understand Ocean issues, we are also the last generation who can stop them. We are all the Ocean Generation.

We achieve this by empowering young people through our Youth Engagement. Our educational courses have reached 1.1 million children in 11 countries. Our suite of educational games have been played over 9 million times and we have just launched our global Wavemaker programme designed to connect our collective to Ocean threats, we provide the tools and education to contribute lasting tangible impact. We support our Wavemakers by accelerating social action, incubating innovation and facilitating green career opportunities while actively seeking to engage with those most affected by Ocean threats.


We designate all funds from Work for Good to supporting our Youth Engagement and movement building activities. This means, developing new innovate tools, funding summer schools and workshops and distributing our work to more countries and young people.
