Swift Engineering is proud to be leading this Ocean Conservation Fellowship Grant:
Swift Engineering, National Geographic Society Explorers, Red Bull Athlete & OTUSA Skipper Jimmy Spithill, and Rod & Heidi Roddenberry and have teamed up to identify and implement innovative solutions for creating a more sustainable future for our oceans, focusing specifically on the protection of marine reserves from Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated Fishing. This low-risk, high-reward business over-exploits two-thirds of the globe’s fish population and surrounding ecosystem – now is the time for the world to take action by providing local communities with tools to monitor illegal fishing and hold offenders accountable for their actions.
We will be awarding a $10,000 BLUE Fellowship Grant to the most innovative solution that protects marine reserves around the world. Successful proposals should include exciting innovative ideas from the following categories:
- Education: promote public awareness and support of marine reserves
- Network: engage citizens in global networked stewardship of marine reserves
- Technology: low-cost citizen/open-source technology solutions
In addition to the BLUE Fellowship Grant you will also receive an invitation to The Blue Ocean Film Festival on November 6th, 2014 to share your ideas with like-minded individuals and entrepreneurs.
This is a global cause that requires swift action; we invite the world to share your ideas. Help conserve our oceans.
