We aim to preserve our oceans as much as we can. Below are all of the projects that we have created and are working a long side throughout the year to be able to make as much difference as we can.

Our Profile

Ocean Marine Guardians, which strives to promote sustainable choices to conserve our ocean ecosystems, aligns to NIST’s philosophy of informed engagement of social and environmental issues. Students of all ages learn not only to recognize the causes and complex factors that contribute to these problems, but also to independently identify solutions and take action. This approach empowers them to connect with others and use their abilities to bring about positive changes in our communities.

Which UN Sustainable Development Goals Do We Support?

To provide a clear context for the aims of service groups at NIST, we align our projects to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). “The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The SDGs work in the spirit of partnership and pragmatism to make the right choices now to improve life, in a sustainable way, for future generations.” This NIST group supports the following goals:

Goal 14 aims to sustainably manage and protect marine and coastal ecosystems from pollution, as well as address the impacts of ocean acidification. Enhancing conservation and the sustainable use of ocean-based resources through international law will also help mitigate some of the challenges facing our oceans.
