What inspires the United World Challenge?

Every second breath we take comes from the ocean.

The oceans are our planet’s life support system. In addition to providing immeasurable cultural and natural value, the ocean provides critical services that keep us all alive.

The ocean:

Healthy oceans are fundamental to a prosperous and safe future.

We depend on the oceans for our very survival and they’re threatened now more than ever before. To ensure our future, it’s time we do something to protect the oceans.

It’s not too late to save the oceans, but time is running short. We need to act now – and the United World Challenge is here to help.

Interested in exploring sponsorship for future expeditions?

Sponsorship is more than just a good story. It’s about pursuing a vision greater than the sum of the parts. It’s about making impact neither partner could achieve alone.

In short, it’s about crossing oceans together.
