Bold Idea 

Restore ecosystems, mitigate climate change and build a blue-green economy by supporting a new generation of ocean farmers and innovators.


GreenWave supports a new generation of ocean farmers and innovators working to restore ecosystems, mitigate climate change and build a blue-green economy. We accomplish this through the empowerment of a global community that develops solutions for local, regional and national needs. GreenWave provides education, floating classroom job training and tools to support citizen-science research and collaboration. We envision a planet that one day supports restorative species and practices in all of our coastal waters. Where millions of oceans farmers contribute food, energy, fertilizer, animal feed and much more to their local economies while securing a healthy planet for future generations.
