Ocean Skills

Being ocean literate means understanding the ocean´s influence on you and your influence on the ocean and is one of the overarching targets of the OC Academy Ocean Skills Program.


Our ocean is the foundation of life on Earth. It provides the water we drink, the air we breathe, the food we eat and is the largest platform for mobility and transportation on our planet. And in its unexplored waters lies the potential resources to help solve health problems and climate change. In all, our Ocean Skills program highlights the urgent need to create a healthy ocean for this planet, so that it may remain habitable, and the building blocks with which to do so. 

Business Skills

Business Skills are relevant to not only understanding how to protect but also how to sustainably leverage, our ocean’s resources. The ocean innovation landscape is rapidly evolving and providing exciting technology and solutions that address our future needs for mobility, food, packaging materials, building materials, medication, and health care just to mention a few.


The Business Skills Learning Modules of the OC Academy focus on the solution landscape and the knowledge and practical tools required to capture an early-stage idea, design a viable solution, commercialize technology and become business ready.  
The next OC Academy program will take place in Autumn 2022, more information will follow. For questions, please contact us on social media or email us at contact@oceancommunity.co
