Earth is a blue planet, with the ocean accounting for 70 percent of the Earth’s surface. The ocean is a treasure trove of resources, and is crucial to the survival of mankind. Over the years, our liquid planet has been subjected to various degrees of pollution, including – but not limited to – the reckless dumping of sewage and garbage, and overfishing.
In the face of such adversity, people around the world have increasingly mobilised to help implement measures in protection of the ocean. To encourage and publicise such movements, we will be holding an awards ceremony at ADEX Beijing. We hope to raise awareness of the importance of conservation by presenting success stories, and introducing role models. OCEAN360 Awards Categories:
