The three main obstacles to effective Environmental, Climate and Human Rights Protection are the lack of sufficient technical and financial resources and the lack of Education. 

Education is a fundamental factor for the implementation of long-lasting environmental protection measures. The effectiveness of protected areas, for example, is directly proportional to the involvement of the local communities and the government. Only where the affected actors understand the benefits of protected areas to their economy, the conservation measures will be supported and implemented effectively. 

​We are committed to empower communities, contribute to capacity building and inspire the next generation of Ocean defenders by sharing pro bono workshops, lectures and free educational resources.
