Mission Ocean

The mission in this area is called Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030.

Man-made, climate-driven changes are putting our ocean and waters and consequently our societies at a serious risk.

The mission’s new, systemic approach will address the ocean and waters as one and play a key role in achieving climate neutrality and restoring nature.

The mission will help achieve the EU objectives of protecting  30% of the EUs sea area as well as restoring marine eco-systems and 25.000 km of free flowing rivers, prevent and eliminate pollution by reducing plastic litter at sea, nutrient losses and use of chemical pesticides by 50% and make the blue economy climate-neutral and circular with net-zero maritime emissions.

Restore Our Ocean and Waters by 2030 - Communication on Missions is published!

The Commission launched the Mission ‘Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030’. This Mission, part of Horizon Europe, aims in the next decade to restore the health of one of our most precious common goods: our ocean and waters. It will deliver on the European Green Deal by restoring ecosystems and biodiversity, eliminating pollution, and making the blue economy carbon-neutral and circular.
