I am honored to have be invited to the World Water Forum in Marseille, south of France. During the week at the forum I got to learn so many things and facts about the water. Some of them spooked me out and some of them were pleasant to hear. The number of people that was involved into this forum really made an unforgetable impression and moreover I have realised how many us are out there helping the water to find its way to where it is needed the most.
Also since I have been so active in different organizations and fondations like Peace and Sport, l’unss and Green Cross it has been a real pleasure to share my opinion and my water experience with the forum members. The sports athletes as kitesurfers are directly connected to the oceans and never the less the water is essential element for the futher sport improvements and self joy. I believe we have one of the strongest voices out there to attract the attention for stop polluting the water and we are the first ones that should educated the rest of the world about what it is the ocean and why we need to protect it.
Without speaking any further I have a short movie that we and Deimantina were happy to create. I hope that this little example will seed the wish to be careful about our natures and continue cleaning what is polluted.
As I am an ambassador for Green Cross I have got a great opportunity to meet and talk to GC founder Mikhail Gorbachev (president of Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) as well as Jean Michel Cousteau (French explorer, environmentalist, educator, and film producer, president of GC in France) and other GC ambassadors Famke Jenssen (famous actress and former fashion model) and Franck Vogel (photojournalist).
