The Sea Ranger Service is a social enterprise that has pioneered a model which simultaneously creates social and environmental impact. It is on a mission to affect social-economic regeneration of coastal regions whilst improving conservation of the world’s oceans.

The Sea Ranger Service has three primary activities to achieve this mission:

– Training young people to become Sea Rangers as a start to their maritime career
– Carrying out sustainable offshore services and ocean conservation work at sea
– Constructing purpose-built sailing work vessels to carry out this work cost-effectively and clean

The unique entrepreneurial approach which the Sea Ranger Service has developed creatively combines services in youth engagement, shipbuilding, offshore services and environmental conservation to tackle youth unemployment, create modern seafaring jobs and regenerate marine biodiversity globally. 

The award-winning method has been piloted in The Netherlands since 2018 and will be scaled internationally from 2021 through a social franchising programme co-created with partners.
