The #OneLess initiative is led by the Zoological Society of London, Forum for the Future, the International Programme on the State of the Ocean and the Thames Estuary Partnership. It is an experiment run by the Marine CoLABoration to encourage more people to value to the ocean. It is designed to be collaborative and inclusive.
The Marine CoLABoration is a group of nine NGOs with wide-ranging interests and areas of expertise working together to increase the impact of solutions to ocean degradation by making a broader range of values – not just short-term economic gain – count in decision-making. It does so by bringing together experts from diverse fields, creating a ‘laboratory’ space to think differently, test new approaches, learn from the results, and then share them widely to influence change. It was established by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in 2015.
