Capgemini Europe Cluster teams* have launched the Capgemini Blue Challenge in collaboration with BioMarine, an organization at the crossroads of research, business, and investment with a scientific and socio economic approach. The challenge is designed to support and promote start-ups that have created innovative solutions based on the role seaweed can play in contributing to a more sustainable and inclusive world. Throughout the challenge the start-ups’ sustainable solutions will be selected and assessed according to three key criteria: environmental impact, social and inclusion impact, and innovation.

Spread across 37 nations from the tropics to the poles, the 50 UNESCO marine World Heritage sites are among the ocean’s most productive waters. Their abundance of marine life is vital to sustain the livelihoods of indigenous communities, local businesses and artists alike.

Air France-KLM sent into the air Tuesday what the company called its first long-haul flight powered by sustainable aviation fuel — petroleum mixed with a synthetic jet fuel derived from waste cooking oils. The passenger jet took off with sustainable fuel making up 16 percent of its supply for the journey, and they aim to slowly make a switch from fossil fuels to a mixture involving sustainable fuel. Air France-KLM is aiming to make 5 per cent of its fuel sustainable by 2030.

The United States, United Kingdom, Chile, Costa Rica, and France announced a new global partnership to advance the role of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) as a nature-based solution in the fight against climate change. The announcement comes ahead of the United Nations climate change (COP 26) and biodiversity (COP 15) conferences later this year.

Understanding the fashion industry’s murky relationship with water goes much deeper than statistics suggest.
The manufacture of clothes is a thirsty activity, from the cultivation of cotton to the processing of viscose, including the dyeing and printing of fabrics. But fashion’s water footprint goes far beyond the water it uses throughout the supply chain – we also need to consider where the water ends up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Rather than wanting to know exactly how much water it takes to make our clothes, we should be asking brands what exactly they are doing to make sure the water they use gets back into the system safely. might not be as satisfying as a simple statistic, but it highlights that every decision-maker in the fashion supply chain has the power to change those numbers – they just have to be willing to try. ” –@beatrice_anna⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

On World Ocean Day (8th June 2021), countries from all four corners of the world – from India to Guyana, South Korea to Austria have pledged to support the ‘30 by 30’ commitment which is being championed by the UK-led Global Ocean Alliance and the High Ambition Coalition for Nature and People, co-chaired by the UK, Costa Rica and France.

This next milestone follows a successful meeting of the G7 Climate and Environment ministers, during which all members agreed to champion the global ‘30×30’ target to conserve or protect at least 30 percent of the world’s land and at least 30 percent of the world’s ocean by 2030, as well as committing to ‘30 x 30’ domestically.

Notre #Mobula8 will be on display this June 19 during “Ménage ton canal”.

We are happy to participate in this event alongside nearly 50 local actors, in order to fight and raise awareness against plastic pollution.

The Mobula 8 will begin its clean-up missions in 2021. Its first departure will be for Indonesia at the end of the year, where 5 of the 20 most polluted rivers in the world are located.

Thanks to EFINOR for this collaboration.

Les écosystèmes de #carbonebleu et le plancton sont de véritables “pompes à carbone”
Protéger ces écosystèmes constitue une solution importante pour lutter contre le #changementclimatique et préserver la biodiversité marine

Restaurer et protéger les écosystèmes de carbone bleu comme les mangroves, marais salés & herbiers marins contribue à l’#atténuation et à l’adaptation au #changementclimatique, ainsi qu’au développement des populations locales

Des projets qui étudient le #plancton améliorent notre compréhension de son rôle dans l’absorption du #CO2 et soulignent son importance dans la chaîne alimentaire

Dans le sillage du World Ocean Day hier, le rapport des solutions de la Ocean & Climate Platform regorge d’initiatives concrètes pour la protection et la régénération de l’océan. Focus sur le #carbonebleu avec tēnaka parmi les solutions et initiatives prometteuses qui participeront du 23 au 25 septembre au Waves of Change Coalition Forum!

Dans le cadre de la campagne des Pirates du Plastique, le Parc national des Calanques vous invite à la rencontre de deux initiatives citoyennes inspirantes qui luttent contre la pollution plastique en mer.

Sea Plastics : une aventure étudiante qui fait avancer la recherche scientifique

En escale à Marseille, les cinq étudiants-aventuriers de Sea Plastics vous présenteront leur expédition à travers la Méditerranée. A bord de leur catamaran, leur mission principale consiste à prélever des échantillons indispensables à la recherche scientifique sur la pollution et à sensibiliser le public.

Wings of the Ocean : dépolluer les océans et les espaces littoraux

Fondée par deux anciens membres de SeaSheperd, l’association Wings of the Ocean envoie ses voiliers naviguer aussi bien au large de l’Atlantique que sur les rives de l’étang de Berre… Avec toujours le même objectif : dépolluer et inciter les populations locales à se défaire de l’emprise du plastique. L’équipage vous relèvera son projet de centre de revalorisation des déchets collectés.

A travers leurs récits et témoignages, ces amoureux de la mer transmettront leur engagement et leur goût de l’aventure. Les discussions qui s’en suivront permettront d’échanger sur notre rôle, individuel et collectif, pour participer à un monde plus durable et solidaire.

On World Ocean Day, June 8, a collaboration of scientific institutions and ocean groups from around the world, will launch scientific monitoring devices into the ocean.  Seven devices, one for each G7 nation, will be launched into ocean currents around the G7 Summit’s Cornish venue ahead of the Summit starting later this week (11th June).


The launch is designed to increase understanding about how plastic pollution behaves in the ocean. Designed to mimic a single use plastic drinks bottle, the devices will respond to currents and winds as real bottles do. They could potentially travel hundreds of miles over the course of the project, passing over deep ocean trenches, across major migratory routes for marine mammals and birds and out into the High Seas. Each device will gather vital data to help scientists understand how plastic moves across the ocean and the potential risk it poses to marine wildlife along the way. The data will also be fed into ocean observing systems and used to ground truth ocean current observations and models.

On June 08th, join us for World Ocean Day! 🌊
Let’s all clean the beaches, the river and lalake banks together! 👊
See you on June 08th!
