Marine conservation is everyone’s business. More than 71% of the earth’s surface is covered by water. Lakes, rivers and oceans are crucial to life on our planet.
Prince Albert II of Monaco joined the Deutsche Meeresstiftung (German Ocean Foundation) and boot Düsseldorf in January 2017 to create the ‘ocean tribute’ Award. The prize is awarded for innovative and sustainable projects and ideas that are designed to help protect our bodies of water.
National and international projects from New Zealand, the USA, United Kingdom and the Netherlands have submitted entries for the ‘ocean tribute’ Award 2018. Our panel of experts has nominated nine of the projects entered for the prize. The winners in the categories of industry, science and society are to be announced at the boot Düsseldorf on 22 January 2018
