WELCOME TO THE OCEAN AFFAIR
A Special event on Necker Island to save the Ocean.
"OPPORTUNITY ARISES WHEN UNCONNECTED PEOPLE BECOME CONNECTED"
Our oceans are in trouble and it is our duty to protect them.
For countless years, groups around the planet have been talking about the threats facing Our Oceans. The time for talk is over,
Together with Sir Richard Branson and a school of ocean friends, we will host an event bringing together luminaries from all walks of life to have a serious conversation about what we need to do next.
Our mission is to catalyze action in an environment curated to form a community of mutual support.
Join us on Necker Island with 120 other influential leaders to build strategies on a number of growing threats facing the health of Our Oceans and Life Below Water.
You can look forward to talks led by leaders and visionaries from all industries around conservation efforts, social beach lunches, dinners under the stars, watersports, costume parties & beats by our DJ - Alex Cruz.
As a lot of us are keen kiters, we will make sure there is plenty of time to get out there, maximizing the wind conditions!
We hope to see you soon,
Susi Mai, Debbie Kinder, and Jeremy McKane
