2021 is a ‘super year’ for the ocean. It heralds the launch of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, a major global initiative to deepen our scientific knowledge of our blue planet and create “the ocean we want”. It will also witness the culmination of a new high seas treaty (the “BBNJ” treaty) and the finalisation of exploitation guidelines for the mining of minerals from the deep seabed, amongst other important legal policy developments. In light of this moment of increased scrutiny on the management and use of marine biodiversity and resources, we would like to bring the plight of the ocean to global consciousness, through a unique collaboration between science and music. We would like to invite ocean stakeholders around the world to join us in a virtual singalong of ‘Song of the Ocean’, to be premiered on World Oceans Day 2021! Inspired by science and international ocean law, my ‘Song of the Ocean’ – to wonderful words by Grahame Davies – is going virtual. YOU will get a chance to protect our oceans and sing at World Ocean Day to the WORLD!! Come and join us. It’s free to take part and you can record your bit at home. Singers of all abilities and no ability are welcome. You don’t need to read music, and signers are very much welcome too. Details can be found in the link above.
