Narrated by world-renowned marine scientist Dr Sylvia Earle, this four-part series investigates the impacts of climate change on our ocean and coastal communities in Southeast Asia. It also looks at the adaptive solutions that EOS scientists, governments, and businesses are exploring that will benefit future generations in the region.

Each episode in the series explores a key theme related to sinking cities, extreme weather and powerful tsunamis, urban oceans and super corals, and sea-level rise and engineering solutions.

is written and directed by Liz Courtney, Artist in Residence at EOS, who also wrote and directed the previous documentary series Climate Impact Asia. At the launch of Changing Ocean Asia, the keynote speech by Dr Earle, who is also a member of EOS' Scientific Advisory Board, was aired.
