  • BUILDING COMMUNITY TO TAKE ACTION AROUND OCEAN CONSERVATION

    A SPECIAL EVENT ON NECKER ISLAND TO PROTECT 30% OF THE WORLD'S OCEANS BY 2030

    POWERED BY STANDARD GRAPHENE

  • Commitment to Ocean Action with a mission to protect 30% by 2030

    Our oceans are in trouble and it is our duty to protect them.

     

    We’re on the brink of shutting off our own life support system

    The oceans are undergoing an onslaught from every angle. Global warming and acidification. Commercial fishing operations. Plastic pollution.

     

    The Ocean Summit, now UltraMarine Ocean Summit, on Necker Island was created by Jeremy McKane and Susi Mai.

     

    We bring together actionists from all around the world in four main categories:

    Ocean Impact Investors

    Ocean Tech Entrepreneurs

    Policy Makers

    Artists and Storytellers

     

    Our inaugural Ocean Summit on Necker Island occurred on February 1-3, 2019. Over 70 people from 10 different countries came together not to discuss ideas but to discuss action. Our hope is to make a dent in protecting these oceans each year.

    Based on the last extensive study published in Science Magazine, the Oceans could be dead by 2048 based on current rates of exploitation - and since then things have only accelerated.

     

    Together with Sir Richard Branson and a school of ocean friends, we will host an event bringing together luminaries from all walks of life to have a serious conversation about what we need to do next.

     

    Our mission is to catalyze action in an environment curated to form a community of mutual support.

    Susi Mai

    Professional Kiteboarder and Ocean Defender

    Born to parents who were passionate windsurfers, her entire family moved to the Dominican Republic when she was five to pursue their love of adventure and great beaches. When she was a teenager, she discovered her life’s passion: kiteboarding. She competed on the world tour for 10 years and along the way, her deep passion for the ocean has manifested into a number of creative, innovative and impactful projects that combine watersports and ocean conservation, including ULTRAMARINE and the Cabarete Kite Festival event in the Dominican Republic.

    Jeremy McKane is an Artist with a background in technology. At 18, he found himself working in a startup that would one day become (for a time) the world’s largest web hosting provider. Today the company is known as NTT VERIO. In that time the internet promised potential uses that we take for granted today. It was this early experience that provided an alternate perspective. As an artist, McKane’s work has been shown around the world that often includes a mixture of technology and thought-provoking imagery about our oceans. McKane uses Art to engage the public to do something about the threats facing the Ocean. He is also the founder of OCEAN™ that aims to protect Our Oceans by reducing enforcement expense and defining value with the biodiversity that exists within.
