Deauville - September 3 & 4, 2021

24HRS FOR THE OCEAN --5E EDITING - BETWEEN SKY, LAND AND SEA
Since July 2017, the Time for the Ocean association aims to alert and educate the general public on the urgent need to take action against ocean pollution due to plastic waste. Covering more than 70% of the earth's surface, the ocean is home to most of the still unexplored biosphere. Carbon pump and oxygen producer, the ocean and the organisms it harbors play a key role in regulating the earth's climate, while being increasingly affected by global changes.

SPEND 24 HOURS ON OCEANS: A SINGLE DAY FOR A VITAL ISSUE
Time for the Ocean promotes exchanges, showcases knowledge and expertise, and creates the conditions for interaction between art and the environment by supporting all projects and achievements intended to protect the oceans and the coast. Artists, scientists, decision-makers, entrepreneurs, personalities are committed to the preservation of the Ocean and come together to support this fundamental cause:
• Through the impact of the image: with a photo exhibition in partnership with the Photojournalism Prize of the Carmignac Foundation on the Lucien Barrière promenade, an artistic creation with the painter Fabrice Hyber and an installation by the artist Chiara Lei ,
• Through screenings: with the artistic documentary "Sea Art" and the film on plastic from the TARA foundation,
• Through the power of the word: with a conference "Plastic pollution: challenges and solutions" to democratize scientific speech through debates and meetings,
• By raising awareness: with a pick-up on the beach in Deauville.

Now in place at the beginning of September, awareness-raising actions aimed at school audiences will be offered on Friday, September 3.
