Speak for the Ocean
The ocean is the life support system of our planet. But it does not have a voice, save through those who take it upon themselves to stand up and speak for it.
COP26 is a complex and critical conference with every nation on the planet present and negotiating for their futures behind closed doors. But the complex systems that create and sustain life on this Earth are not truly represented - so who will speak for the ocean?
Ocean mic invites you to do just that. Just 3 minutes, your voice, your sea story and why we must protect it.
SUBMIT YOUR OCEAN MIC
We want to hear from you. Send a message to world leaders attending the COP26 climate conference about why it is vital that they protect the ocean and put it at the heart of climate policy.
What Should I Say?
The theme is Ocean & Climate Emergency. Share an opinion, a solution, your hopes and fears. It could be a slam poem, a story, a project - but ultimately tell us why we must protect the ocean for now and for our collective future. Together we can raise our voice for the ocean.
How do I do it?
Record a video of yourself on your phone from wherever you are. Videos need to be recorded in landscape style and be no longer than 3 minutes long. Or you can join our drop in sessions at the dates and locations listed below.
Where do I submit it?
Upload your video message via the link below. Simple.
What happens next?
We will pick the most engaging video submissions and include them in a short reel that will be shared on our channels and premiered at Ocean Mic during COP26.
Entrants must be 18 or over. On uploading a submission to Ocean Mic you agree that we have permission to use your video across our social channels and on our website. Your recording may also be utilised across other marketing, email and creative content in relation to Ocean Mic.
