The oceanCARE Program

The oceanCARE Program makes it easier for any person or organization to engage in the fight against marine pollution.

As a member of OceanCARE, you will be part of a network where you can meet others with the same goals as you and share knowledge, experience, and inspiration. Your positive environmental impact is documented with numbers and facts, and it’s up to you to decide your level of ambition.

Cleaning beaches is our core activity. Today, we are the world’s most efficient beach cleaning actor, based on the amount of trash and the distance we clean for the available funding.

Creating awareness is about telling stories about marine litter and our mission in all available channels, including through our ambassador program. People need to be aware of the problem to engage and make a change.

Research and development is about learning more about the sources of marine litter and developing solutions and systems to prevent future pollution of the oceans. We are also focusing on increased recycling and reducing the use of virgin materials.

Engagement┬áis about turning awareness and knowledge into action. We help individuals and companies engage with tools, technical resources, networking, and methodology, and we’re creating a worldwide army with ambassadors fighting for a clean and thriving sea.


Building a network and finding people and actors who share values and visions for a clean and thriving ocean may be the most important thing we can do. We love doing this through practical work and actions at sea, but also through consulting, workshops and events at our members’ home fields.

As an oceanCARE member, you have access to information, reports, media (photo/video), and invitations to events and workshops. You can also join our expeditions and cleanups around the North Sea and Arctic Oceans.
