Working with the Oceans
Our large scale projects bring employment and economic benefits to coastal communities but more than that we bring our shared values on sustainability and a global perspective about the actions and methods we use to carry out our work.
This involves providing educational materials to students of all levels, school visits and looking towards new ways of knowledge leadership on behalf of the Oceans. We aspire do this in every coastal community in which we operate so that each small step in providing support, education and awareness about sustainable blue economy projects will go towards a greater understanding globally and build a movement to care for the oceans while benefitting positively from them.
World Oceans Day
World Oceans Day is an international day that takes place annually on 8 June. We will be building on our activities for this important day each year.
We encourage our staff and local communities to to remind everyone of the major role the oceans have in everyday life.
They are the lungs of our planet, providing most of the oxygen we breathe and have to potential to provide our energy and food in the most sustainable ways possible.
In the end, it is a day to celebrate together the beauty, the wealth and the promise of the ocean.
On 8th June 2022 we plan to have a series on online presentations, media events and local engagements across all of our global coastal locations.
We have a number of Internship programmes operating on an ongoing basis for third level students and graduates. These may involve engineering, business and digital marketing. The internships are designed to give a broad understanding of our sustainable business model and an awareness of the role that the oceans can play in the future of our planet.

Simply Blue Student Challenge
We are developing a series of challenges for students globally. These involve on-the-ground research and project work that will help inform us of opinions, attitudes and up to the minute data on the impact and potential of the Oceans on peoples lives.
In Ireland, we are encouraging second level students to enter scientific exhibition competitions with projects focused on the Oceans. In Ireland, this involves the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition while in the UK and the US we are developing a similar format.
“The science states that what we do in the next decade is critical in terms of climate change, I could not think of a better place to be to make a difference than Simply Blue.”
“It is a privilege to work in a team of diverse and talented people on exciting first of a kind projects that push the renewable energy revolution forward.”
“Simply Blue offers the opportunity to address the challenge of climate change and energy security and I am delighted to be able to bring my maritime experience with Ireland’s Navy to Simply Blue in pursuit of a sustainable future for all.”
