Ocean: keys to act - encourage action at local level via education and empowerment
by Green Cross France & Territoires (Non-governmental organization (NGO))
Willingness to protect the ocean to protect ourselves is there, but most of the time it is difficult to cascade into sound tangible actions.

The objective of our "Ocean: keys to act" publication, to be launched on June 8th, 2017, in english and french, is to build a common momentum on the ocean situation and priorities, to share it widely, and to propose candidate solutions so that everybody can act effectively. It focuses on individuals, local communities and governments, as well as companies and/or traditional societies.

The making-of this book is conducted by Jean-Michel Cousteau and Nicolas Imbert.

The launch of the book will be performed simultaneously in New Caledonia (Green Pacifik Festival), Europe (World Ocean Day) and US.
