Human health and ocean - what is the connection?

Human Health and the Ocean

Climate regulation, food, pollution, medicine and the blue gym effect - these are the 5 established and explored symbiotic connections with the oceans, human beings benefit from and rely on for health and wellbeing. However, for us to thrive and continue to enjoy the benefits the oceans graciously provide, we need to engage in a mutually beneficial relationship in which we prevent further deterioration of the ocean's ecology and proactively protect it. Raising the awareness about the role of the oceans in our lifes is the first step towards environmentally responsible behavior.

A new video produced as part of the Sea Change project contributes to making this first important step.
