Leaders for ocean sustainability

Reinforce the Blue Generation Program.

Our goal

This action consists in using leaders in their field of action as vehicles to spread the Foundation’s message and reach a broader audience, including youngsters, and generate awareness for ocean conservation using their own approach and language. Leaders for ocean sustainability may be sports references, artists, musicians and others.

 

This Action is thought to reinforce the Blue Generation program.
