TED x Seapoint – Who Moved my Sushi?

This past weekend I was lucky enough to attend TEDx Seapoint – Who Moved my Sushi?  It was a truly inspiring event that brought light to the plight of our oceans (over 80% of the oceans fisheries are currently over-exploited) and shared solutions to protect and restore our marine resources. The speakers were change-makers from all walks of life – from big wave riders and free divers to filmmakers, artists, photographers and marine biologists.  As the day progressed a common theme began to emerge – that people will only conserve what they know and love and that media has a huge role to play in creating these connections. So let’s us all share our stories of water, for it is the element that connects us…

Baba Dioum “We will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; & we will understand only what we have been taught.”
