Of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), SDG14—Life Below Water—continues to receive the least long-term funding. In fact, according to Economist Impact, the ocean has received only 0.56% of all philanthropic funding since 2016.

That’s why those of us focused on ocean restoration and innovation know that a hybrid, intersectional approach to funding and elevating our work is essential to achieving impact at scale and with speed.

So for this month’s edition of Planet & Purpose, I talked to experts from across varying sectors to offer their informed perspectives on the power of collaboration for the ocean, including:

  • Courtney Boyd Myers (CBM), Founder & CEO of AKUA PBC
