[Program change] A moment of nostalgia with Sylvia Earle, C2 Montréal 2018
22/10/2020 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
**Programming Change** Please note that unfortunately we have to cancel the Coup de Coeur session that was scheduled for today at 4:30 pm. It will be replaced by a replay of the talk that legendary oceanographer Sylvia Earle gave at C2 Montreal in 2018. Thank you for your understanding.
Experience a moment of nostalgia with a talk from C2 Montréal 2018. Revisit the conversation with Dr. Sylvia Earle and Diane Brady, on why saving our oceans means saving ourselves.
Truly a living legend, Dr. Earle has led more than 100 oceanic expeditions worldwide since donning one of the very first scuba tanks for her initial dive in 1953.
Now, Dr. Earle watches, frustrated, as species and reefs the world over disappear. She’s determined to educate people about the world’s “life support system” to help them to stop thinking of the ocean as an endless free resource.
“I do not think of myself as an activist,” says the founder of Mission Blue, an organization that encourages people to explore, learn about and protect our oceans. “I think of myself as a witness.”
**This session will be held in English.**
