About OOU

Oceans offer extraordinary development opportunities, but are also facing multiple threats: over exploitation, pollution, biodiversity loss, etc.

The Université Internationale de la Mer (UIM) has established the Ocean Open University as a Think and Do Tank for dealing with these opportunities and issues.

It operates with action-oriented training, conferences, consultancy, monitoring and research.  

Its approach is resolutely systemic and multidisciplinary, integrating ecological, economic, societal, geopolitical and other perspectives.
