Goal 14: Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources

“Our rainwater, drinking water, weather, climate, coastlines, much of our food, and even the oxygen in the air we breathe, are all ultimately provided and regulated by the sea.”

Life below water is a treasure that not many of us get to experience on a daily basis. The detrimental consequences of for example plastic in the ocean affects the oceans itself and humanity severely. The salt water and its inhabitants are of immense value to our existence. Artists are capable of translating the devastating consequences of this situation in perceivable, tangible forms, increasing awareness of our responsibility to redefine our relationship with the oceans.
