Areas for coral-boration
We see businesses as vehicles for sea change. we work with companies of all kinds and sizes to dive deep on environmental issues and explore the change we want to see in the world – together. SPS breaks away from traditional environmental campaigns and draws inspiration from everyday life, trends, and pop culture to attract different kinds of audiences. We bring marine conservation to the most unlikely places.
We work with different stakeholders to achieve common goals and objectives. We’ve organized and facilitated multi-stakeholder consultations and dialogues, and conducted key informant interviews for various partners.
We see communication as a powerful tool for marine conservation. We create, write, edit, and design content for information and education, bringing in a balance of technical and creative expertise.
Our team offers curated workshops and modules on technical topics and transferable communications and leadership skills.
We develop advocacy campaigns and materials and collaborate with policymakers and government officials to pass or amend legal frameworks so that they are science-based, enforceable, and socially just.
