DEEP DIVE: The Alerting State of The Ocean – Inspiring Action and Searching for Solutions (Webinar)

6 June @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EEST


How is the ocean both a buffer against and a victim to climate change? How can a sense of connection to the ocean aid environmental action? What does concrete conservation look like?

We warmly welcome you to our Deep Dive webinar on 6 June, on the week of the World Ocean Day. Some of the world’s most passionate ocean professionals gather to discuss the ocean crisis, advocacy work, conservation efforts, and the value of a personal connection to the ocean midst marine environmental changes.

We will hear inspiring talks from our speakers, aquanaut Fabien Cousteau, marine biologist Lucy Woodall, ocean advocate Arya Yurdacan and ocean and wildlife photographer Greg Lecoueur.

Cousteau opens the floor by sharing his insights on ocean advocacy and showing some miraculous underwater footage.

Woodall helps us to better understand the ocean-climate nexus and the pressing changes happening in the ocean ecosystems.

Yurdacan shares with us the experiences of inspiring people to engage in ocean conservation and raising awareness.

Lecoeur tells us about the experiences of getting to know the underwater world through the camera lens.

In the second half of the webinar, we will delve into the marine conservation work being put into practice in the Baltic Sea and the Mediterranean regions. Discussing the practical solutions to critical issues such as nature loss and eutrophication, are Annamari Arrakoski-Engardt, CEO of the John Nurminen Foundation and Alessio Satta, founder of the MEDSEA Foundation, and Sabine Roux de Bézieux, president of the Fondation de la Mer.

The event will be hosted by journalist Katri Makkonen.

The event will be held online at https://enchant.fi/john-nurmisen-saatio/deep-dive, at 4–5.30 p.m. (EET) / 3–4.30 p.m. (CET). Participation is free of charge.
