A SEA Pledge is a commitment everyone can make through a written and or monetary pledge to treat the seas, estuaries, coasts and oceans in an environmentally friendly manner. SEA Pledge is more than just a pledge; it is about achieving sustainability, creating opportunities, impacting lives and changing people’s life choices through Sustainable Education and Skills Centres, which will provide education and skills training to help marginalized people who depend upon the seas and other natural resources to find alternative forms of livelihoods and alleviate poverty, while promoting sustainable practices. SEA Pledge and SEAS Centres will be officially launched during COP 17 in a spectacular, fun event that aims to set world records among surfers, divers, swimmers, anglers, yachters, shipping-lines and many others.

It is focused mostly on issues of climate change, but of course takes into consideration other environmental and social issues that relate to climate change. This year was declared the United Nation Year of the Forests, which directed a lot funding towards research and conservation of forests. Part of the aim of the SEA Pledge initiative is to make 2012 the Year of Oceans.
