The world’s oceans—their temperature, chemistry, currents and life—make the Earth habitable for humankind. How we manage this vital resource is essential for humanity as a whole. The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to protect the planet, end poverty and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Goal 14, Life Below Water, strives to sustainably manage and protect marine and coastal ecosystems from pollution, as well as address the impacts of ocean acidification.This talk introduces the goal and how we can all help achieve it.
