Greenpeace Petition for a Strong Global Ocean Treaty


Tweet now!

It’s time to make history for ocean protection. 

After a two year delay due to the pandemic, world leaders are meeting in NYC at this very moment at the 4th United Nations Intergovernmental Conference (IGC4) to negotiate a Global Ocean Treaty. We can’t settle for anything less than groundbreaking — a treaty to protect at least 30% of the open oceans as sanctuaries by 2030.

Urgent: Tweet at Secretary of State Blinken to demand a strong Global Ocean Treaty that protects at least 30% of global oceans.

Our dying oceans can’t wait. From industrial fishing to habitat destruction, time is running out. The science is clear: to save marine life, ensure livelihoods and tackle the climate crisis, we need to establish a network of sanctuaries to protect at least a third of our global oceans by 2030. That’s the minimum amount of protection required this decade that would allow our oceans to properly recover!

That’s why over the past two years we haven’t let up the pressure — building momentum and people power to make sure the United Nations cannot ignore the force of our 5 million strong movement to protect the ocean. In the US alone, we just delivered more than 135,000 signatures to the State Department to demand the Biden administration support a strong Global Ocean Treaty.

Tweet now!


Ellensue, millions of activists, like you, made this possible. But we aren’t slowing down yet, we need to ramp up the pressure on Twitter in real time — to make sure the Biden admin can’t hide behind closed-door UN negotiations. 

If you have Twitter, send a tweet now to demand Secretary Blinken push for a strong Global Ocean Treaty at IGC4!

A strong Global Ocean Treaty will be a crucial step towards covering international waters in a network of ocean sanctuaries – areas off-limits to destructive human activities like industrial fishing and the emerging threat of deep sea mining. We can’t stop fighting now!

Let’s get #ProtectTheOceans trending as world leaders meet right now in NYC.

Will you amplify our global movement of ocean activists by tweeting at our UN delegate to make our voices heard? Act now to negotiate a strong Global Ocean Treaty!

Thank you for taking action,

Arlo Hemphill, Senior Oceans Campaigner
Greenpeace USA

P.S: If you don’t have twitter, add your name right now to tell the Biden administration that we want a Global Ocean Treaty that protects at least 30% of the world’s oceans by 2030.

Greenpeace never takes a dime from corporations or governments. Everything we do is thanks to the generous support of people like you!

    First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a
    quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your head prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.

    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Thank you!
