Description

We believe business and leisure travel can act as a catalyst to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems. This June, join us for a screening and conversation to tackle one of these issues: conserving life below water.

At this rate, in less than 85 years, more than half of the world’s marine species may stand on the brink of extinction. Already, more than 30% of marine habitats have been destroyed.

If you’ve ever been enchanted by the water and the life that exists within it, now is the time to take a stand.

On June 8th, join Travel+SocialGood DC with our sister Hubs in Austin, New York City and Sao Paulo to discuss how the travel industry can positively impact and preserve life under water. We’ll tackle discussions around ocean and water conservation on a global level, and then bring it back down to what you can do to make a positive impact on a local level and in your day-to-day lives.

Our goal is for you to walk away feeling empowered to take effective action for marine conservation in your own life.

A Film Followed by Discussion

Voices from the Sea follows the story about the battle of a remote society to save the sea, and this action becomes an example of courage for the planet. After the screening, we’ll lead discussions focused on building awareness about the interconnected issues of ocean conservation in our own lives and businesses, and how we can make a positive impact, both at home and abroad.

Travel+SocialGood is proud to partner with SIMA for this screening

SIMA is a 501c3 impact media agency that awards social-documentary storytelling of excellence, screen films in communities and classrooms worldwide and connects international audiences, educators and organizations with the best global impact cinema.

#SaveOurOcean

The Ocean Conference (June 5-9 in New York City) is the high-level United Nations Conference that will coincide with World Oceans Day, to support the implementation of Global Goal 14, focused on conserving our oceans.

The Conference aims to be the game changer that will reverse the decline in the health of our ocean for people, planet and prosperity. It will be solutions-focused with engagement from all.

During the Ocean Conference, Travel+SocialGood is hosting events in five of its Hub cities worldwide to raise awareness on the potential of the travel industry to act as a force to help solve the Global Goals.

What are the Global Goals?

The Global Goals are a series of ambitious targets to end our world’s most pressing issues by 2030. The Goals were established and agreed upon in 2015 by 193 world leaders, and if these goals are completed, it would mean an end to extreme poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030. Our governments have a plan to save our planet… It’s our job to make sure they stick to it.

Global Goal 14 is set to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.
