The Ocean Race Summit - Presenting Ocean Rights

Watch The Ocean Race Summit live on We Don't Have Time

Ocean Race

The Ocean Race invites you to an event co-organised with the Government of Cabo Verde, IUCN, Earth Law Center and UNDP to present principles showing how recognising the inherent rights of the ocean could be vital to its protection. In partnership with 11th Hour Racing - the Founding Partner of The Ocean Race Racing with Purpose sustainability programme and a Premier Partner of the Race, this event is the final leg of a process that has gathered together over 150 experts, policymakers, business leaders, lawyers, Indigenous Peoples, scientists, NGOs, and other stakeholders to develop principles on ocean rights that could form the
basis of a potential Universal Declaration of Ocean Rights.

The Ocean Race Summits builds on the High Seas Treaty, in which UN nations agreed to steer new rules and a collaborative framework to conserve marine life and restrict harmful activities in two-thirds of the ocean. This landmark initiative paves the way for gaining support for a Universal Declaration of Ocean Rights.

This broadcast is part of The Climate Hub at Climate Week NYC. Full day-by-day program.

Lewis Pugh

UN Patron of the Oceans

Lewis’s driving aim is to help protect our planet’s threatened oceans. As an endurance swimmer, he is unparalleled. He was the first person to undertake a long-distance swim in every ocean of the world. He pioneered the first swim across the North Pole, the first swim along the length of the English Channel, the world’s highest swim, and even a swim under the Antarctic ice sheet. His passion to protect ocean life, combined with his commitment to justice, make him a powerful negotiator and facilitator of change. To date the Lewis Pugh Foundation has been instrumental in securing full protection for over 2 million km2 of the most vulnerable ocean, an area the size of Western Europe.
