Remembering Our Deeper Relationship with Water and Safeguarding Our Global Ocean
The Essence of Water- Oceans Earth and Us Art and Information Exhibition
Remembering Our Deeper Relationship with Water and Safeguarding Our Global Ocean Through a collection of paintings, story and poetry discover more about the delicate nature of the Ocean and of how deeply we are all connected to the element of Water and the global Ocean, the largest Eco system on the Earth. With awareness we can begin to make conscious changes for the future, changes which support a more harmonious, healthier sustainable way forward for the health and future of Humanity, the Oceans and for the Earth as a whole.
Becoming aware of how connected to the global Ocean we all are is so important and understanding how we all affect the Oceans through our daily activities is empowering in the knowledge that we can then find out how we can all play our part in adopting a more caring and pro active attitude to the Water, Seas and the global Ocean. All alongside learning how easy it is to start reducing our own personal carbon dioxide emissions, with information leaflets called - Eco Tips to Save Our Planet from Save our Seas Foundation. Information from the UK Ocean Acidification Research Programme Oceans Under Stress Hot, Sour and Breathless leaflets from Plymouth Marine Laboratory.

Water is the essence of all Life. The oceans absorb up to half of all human CO2 emissions and they also provide half of our atmospheric oxygen levels. The absorption of CO2 emissions are altering the ph. levels of the Oceans and causing the Oceans to become increasingly acidic. This will create dead zones as plankton and corals - the primary producers for nearly all marine life - struggle to survive under increasingly inhospitable conditions. For the future well being of the Oceans, individually and collectively we need large and rapid reductions of global CO2 emissions.
UNEP which overseas the implementation of Agenda 21 and Sustainable development at global level has recognised that Art has a role to play in increasing public awareness. It has stated that the world of Art has always played a critical role in provoking thought and generating dialogue.
