We Are Ocean Change

Our vision is to achieve balance between humanity and the ocean.

We will do this by rallying millions of PADI Ocean Torchbearers - a global force for good that can be mobilized to restore ocean health and support our coastal communities around the world.

It will take all of us working together, united by our passion and armed with a clear plan of action to turn the dial towards a healthy future for people and planet.
