The importance of raising awareness

As an organisation we will never be able to resolve any of the issues facing the ocean on our own. It will take the combined will of governments, corporations and the involvement of general public if we are to bring about changes in perceptions, policy and behaviour. That is why raising awareness is so important.

The opportunity

Just One Ocean was founded by David Jones and he is currently the CEO of the charity. He has spent much of his life on and under the ocean and has seen first hand how human activity has had a detrimental effect on the ocean habitat and marine ecosystems. With over 45 years of experience as a diver, underwater cameraman and writer, he has travelled the world, gaining a unique level of knowledge and understanding about the ocean environment. He has presented at events all over the world on marine conservation subjects, from the impact of plastics on human health to the lessons we can learn from covid-19 from a marine conservation perspective. David likes nothing more than to share his knowledge and experiences in a way that can generate interest, motivate to take action, inspire change, and offer hope.


If you would like to book David for a private, public or corporate speaking event, it can be made by contacting our main office. Presentations are all visually rich and unique, tailored to the client requirements whether that is a school audience, or a corporate real estate organisation conference. We can support private or public events of any size. If learning more about the issues the ocean is facing and what you can do about it and being involved is something that is important to you, why not get in touch.

Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.
