Motion Graphics service for UNESCO

The Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO chose Wideview to create a series of 11 animated motion graphics videos to support The Ocean Decade Challenges. The objective was to produce a motion design video presenting the overall project and 10 motion design videos presenting each of the Decade’s challenges. These movies are used both for internal and external promotion. They are key information tools to promote the Decade and keeps informed the wider public and stakeholders about new developments and advances.

The Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO is a community of Member States that work together to observe, understand and manage the shared marine environment that unites us all. The deep ocean may be the last frontier of the planet but, for over half a century, the ocean has also played a leading role in building greater international cooperation.

As we know, the ocean is in peril. Productive habitats from coastlines, coastal shallows, open ocean and deep seas are being lost or degraded. Over the coming decades, a rapidly changing climate, growing global population, rising food prices, and environmental stressors will have significant, yet highly uncertain, impacts on the ocean and thus on food security and human welfare.

In response to this need, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) proclaimed the “United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development” for a 10-year period. It offers the ocean community a once-in-a-life-time opportunity to join efforts, mobilize resources, create innovative partnerships, and engage governments in moving towards the Ocean We Need for the Future We Want.
