The United Nations declared 2021-2030 as the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. The objective is to motivate international efforts aimed at improving ocean health by providing the science necessary for sustainable development of the oceans to underpin ‘The ocean we need for the future we want’. Achieving this, however, needs more than more than ‘just’ more data and knowledge. It will require new approaches for understanding and tackling complex socio-ecological problems in their entirety. It will require an increased focus on building ocean literacy and public support for ocean futures. It also needs scientists and decision-makers to identify how to facilitate the use of available science and encourage the necessary change of behaviours, and the implementation of policies— at individual, local and global scales — that will leverage greater environmental benefit. The task at hand is a challenging one, that will require scientists to be able to work across disciplines, across knowledge systems, and with a diversity of stakeholders.
