Develop an idea, program, invention or campaign to save the oceans, seas and marine life.

We will target SDG 14: Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources. The world’s oceans – their temperature, chemistry, currents and life – drive global systems that make the Earth habitable for humankind.

Our rainwater, drinking water, weather, climate, coastlines, much of our food, and even the oxygen in the air we breathe, are all ultimately provided and regulated by the sea. Throughout history, oceans and seas have been vital conduits for trade and transportation.

Careful management of this essential global resource is a key feature of a sustainable future. Learn more here.

All teams will present their ideas to a distinguished panel of judges and industry leaders on the Transformation main stage on Wednesday.

2014 Highlight Reel
Take a look at what happened at ReSolve 2014.
Held in NYC in June 2014, 120 emerging talent from agencies across the U.S., working in varied advertising and marketing disciplines, came together for a day-long brainstorming session to solve hunger in NYC.

This sold-out event, held in partnership with Horizon Media and City Harvest, opened with a keynote address from Lauren Bush Lauren of Feed.org before the 10 groups spent the rest of the day developing ideas, campaigns and products to address the issue of hunger.
