On Thursday, 18 November 2010, the first "World Ocean Review" (WOR) was presented to the public with the motto, "Living with the oceans."

The press conference, with the subsequent panel discussion in the former central customs office, Hamburg Harbour, is the first step toward further raising public awareness of the critical condition of the world ocean. Nikolaus Gelpke, project initiator and mareverlag publisher, and Prof. Dr. Martin Visbeck, spokesman for the Kiel Cluster of Excellence "The Future Ocean", both spoke at the press conference. Afterward, Nikolaus Gelpke and Professor Martin Visbeck had a discussion with Paul F. Nemitz, Head of Unit, Maritime Development and Coordination, European Commission, and with the actor and dedicated book author Hannes Jaenicke, under the moderation of Gerald Traufetter of "Der Spiegel."
