ocean-tribute-Award-winner Boris Herrmann sails climate activist to speak at UN-summits overseas
Boris Herrmann and the Malizia Ocean Challenge, who won the "ocean tribute" Award at boot Düsseldorf in January for their commitment to protecting our seas, are sailing the Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg CO2-neutrally to her lectures at two United Nations climate summits.
The initiative of German ocean sailor Herrmann, Monegasque Pierre Casiraghi and Birte Lorenzen takes young people from all over the world on board and introduces them to the topics of marine and climate protection.
Malizia Ocean Challenge supports the climate activist
The aim of Malizia Ocean Challenge is to collect data on the state of the oceans. This data is then evaluated in cooperation with the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg and the IFM Geomar in Kiel to provide answers on questions concerning the absorption of CO² by the oceans.
ocean tribute Award promotes ocean protection
The "ocean tribute" award is presented annually by boot Düsseldorf, Prince Albert II. Foundation and the German Marine Foundation in January at the show in Düsseldorf.
On the occasion of the presentation of the award at boot Düsseldorf 2019, H.E. Bernard Fautrier, Vice President of the Prince Albert Foundation, declared: "The social commitment of Birte, Boris and Pierre is exemplary. Sailing encompasses society and science for the benefit of the environment".
