Special focus on Oceans and climate (in partnership with Surfrider Foundation Europe, with the support of the Ocean & Climate Platform)
Ocean is often forgotten in the climate change negotiations. We decided to focus on this topic in order to explain why it is so crucial not to forget about it anymore and to transmit that challenge to the public.

So much of the world is reached and touched by water. It is the source of life, from where life emerged.  What is the state of our waters today? What must we do to preserve the lives of our oceans and why should we care about ecosystems we can not see? What is the role of the oceans in climate change mitigation and how can we re-friend our seas?
