The world’s oceans are a global commons that provide a wealth of services vital to human and societal wellbeing. As global demands on these services increase, and pressure grows from multiple threats such as climate change, pollution, and resource extraction, we examine some of the tools and approaches that may prove useful in designing a sustainable future for our oceans.

The lecture will introduce the work of the Oxford Martin Programme on Sustainable Oceans and the novel approach it is taking to management of the oceans.
