Sea Vision    ‘take a fresh look at the sea…’

Over 260 organizations from across the wider maritime sector, at sea and ashore, have joined together in Sea Vision UK. In May 2003, Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal became the Sea Vision patron.

Sea Vision UK is the national on-going campaign to raise awareness of the sea, including the maritime sector in its widest sense

There are two objectives: to raise the profile of the maritime sector with the general public and specifically to target awareness among the young, the seed corn of our maritime future. But the initiative goes beyond that – it sets a blueprint for co-operation across the sector for the future.

Sea Vision is an exciting national, regional and local initiative that has already brought together over 260 organisations and associations from all aspects of UK maritime life. Led by the Chamber of Shipping, those involved in the initiative include the manufacturing sector (shipyards and marine equipment producers), ports, marine financial and legal services, the leisure sector (both boat-building and recreational activities), Government, the Royal Navy, commercial fishing, academia, professional institutes and societies, and many more.

Whilst the overall strategy is developed at national level, delivery on the ground will be at a local and regional level throughout the nine English regions and the devolved nations of Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. Essentially Sea Vision is not trying to create a new organisation but rather to build on existing energies and opportunities.
