Formed of a partnership of nine organisations, the Marine CoLABoration was initiated by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in 2015 to increase the capacity of the environmental sector to communicate the role of the ocean in human wellbeing, culture and prosperity. The LAB takes a deliberately experimental approach to exploring the potential of a Values Based Approach to create an understanding of the value which is intrinsic to our seas. Our first live experiment is to increase the significance that Londoners place on the ocean through reducing and ultimately eliminating the use of single use plastic water bottles.
