Oceans Matter- Every Second Breath
This year the oceans have become a global priority. Governments are stepping up to support the blue economy… and invest in expanding marine protected areas, while reeling in illegal fishing operations. Canada, the host of the 2018 G7 Summit put oceans top of the list. World Economic Forum members have launched the Ocean Action Agenda.
The Friends of Ocean Action hosted an entire day of events and luminary panels on Ocean Day @ WEF with long committed ocean advocates like Prince Albert II and John Kerry, to restore the health of our seas and marine ecosystems, reaching already 40 million.
The newly formed Alliance to End Plastic Waste has already committed $1 B to end plastic waste. This alliance comprises 30 Fortune 100 companies with a vested interest in ocean health, including oil majors-shell, ExxonMobil and Total… and chemical companies, like Dow.
Historically, only 1% of Philanthropic capital has gone to ocean protection. But now, visionary leaders like Marc Benioff (Chair of Salesforce) and Prince Albert II of Monaco are leveraging their resources and network to bring more capital, technology, science-based solutions to the oceans. The NEW Benioff Ocean Institute is funding scientific exploration of the deepest, darkest challenges the ocean faces and open-sourcing-investing in entrepreneurial solutions.
Environmental protection groups- like WWF International, are teaming up with technology experts to utilize the best of drone, satellite and blockchain technology to clean up the fishing industry.
Natural Intelligence Worldwide
with Global Leaders
Catherine Cunningham interviews an extraordinary collection of thought leaders in business, government, and society who inspire our collective evolution- to shape a new deal with nature, to avert a global climate crisis, to advance our UN global goals for sustainable human development, and to ensure future technology delivers the greatest good to support life on earth.
The need to awaken our natural intelligence, to re-connect with our true human nature, and to remember our rightful relationship with the natural world has never been more important than it is now.
We are global citizens. We are having a planetary affect on the living biosphere, nature’s ecosystems, and the climate of our planet, Earth. It is time for us to mature as the stewards of our Eikos (home).
There is no Planet B.
Thus, we are on a quest with these interviews to discover the most meaningful messages and the most effective cultural memes that promise to inspire humanity to evolve collectively into our best selves, so that we can positively transition to a new sustainable paradigm in our fast changing world.
