OSI Vision and Mission

Mission banner

OSI envisages a world in which all stakeholders regard the sustainable management of the world’s oceans and coastal areas as an imperative to ensure the perpetuation of the Earth’s healthy biosphere and human life.
OSI aims to be a seamless link to unite inter-governmental organizations, governments (central and local), the business sector and civil society in a global fight to preserve all elements of the ocean.
This role is made possible by bringing together leaders from all walks of life to help with the fight for the oceans:
  • a Policy  Advisory Board of political leaders uniting forces irrespective of party politics;
  • a Corporate Advisory Board of captains of industry;
  • a Scientific and Academic Advisory Board of leading technocrats in social and natural sciences throughout the world.

OSI will drive this mission by:

  • Showcasing  and deploying world-class best practices and innovative strategies in program management and project implementation.
  • Facilitating a forum for diverse stakeholders globally to address economic, environmental, energy and food security issues relating to oceans and coastal marine areas.
  • Using informal diplomacy to influence decision-making within countries when formal diplomacy is not effective.
  • Facilitating funding of initiatives related to oceans and coastal areas.
