This year’s 5-day online event features specially-selected Ocean Leaders who have taken to heart Dr. Sylvia Earle’s TED Prize-winning Call-to-Action that guides this year’s Summit:

Use all means at your disposal – films! expeditions! the web! new submarines! more!… to save and restore the ocean, the blue heart of the planet.” ~ ‘Her Deepness’ Dr. Sylvia Earle, Founder of Mission Blue

For our 3rd annual signature Blue Ocean Network community event, we’ve brought together 12 remarkable people who have combined their passion for the ocean with their unique talents and skill sets to create Hope Spots of conscious change in their fields of interest.

You’ll hear from filmmakers, photographers, artists, scientists, authors, entrepreneurs, travel pros, music artists and more, who are doing what they can, with what they have, from where they are, to affect positive ocean change. No doom and gloom here. Prepare to be inspired!
