The Outlaw Ocean Project

A virtual event on innovative storytelling for change

In support of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 10 and 14


The oceans are some of the last untamed frontiers on our planet. Too big to police, and under no clear international authority, these treacherous waters play host to the extremes of human behavior and activity. The Outlaw Ocean Project uncovers a globe-spanning network of crime and exploitation that emanates from the fishing, oil and shipping industries – but to which all of us are connected. The nonprofit produces innovative journalism from this lawless realm seen and heard all over the world — from documentaries to original music.

Visit The Outlaw Ocean website to learn about the important work of the nonprofit.

Immerse yourself in storytelling through sound: Discover The Outlaw Ocean Music Project.
