Sustainable Oceans and Coasts National Strategy 2021-2030

"The ocean and coastal landscapes that define our island nation are vast, diverse, unique, and irreplaceable, yet fragile and under urgent threat. This is our ‘blue ribbon’. It encircles us, connects land and sea, and forms an integral part of our livelihoods, identities, and wellbeing. It is a prized asset that must be safeguarded and secured, so that it might continue to thrive."

Our vision

We envision Australia and its people thriving in, and contributing to, a sustainable and equitable world.

What we do

Our publications and other outputs influence national discussions on issues relevant to sustainability.

We host and support events that connect people and organisations with diverse backgrounds and sectoral origins to create new opportunities for innovation.

We convene collaborations across sectors, knowledge, and expertise to advance a national sustainability agenda with actionable steps, in the areas defining Australia’s future. We do this through our thematic initiatives.

Our Early Career Researcher and Practitioner Program supports the emerging community of sustainability professionals, researchers, and organisers across the nation to build cross-sectoral networks and skills to tackle sustainability challenges.
