Taking Action for the Ocean
Nina discussed opportunities and solutions with an esteemed panel of experts including Enric Sala, Michelle Bachelet, Marc Benioff and Al Gore. The panel was moderated by Francine Lacqua, Editor-at-Large and Presenter from Bloomberg Television.
Nina's key takehome message for the audience:
"Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something. I would recomend these three things for people to act on: use your vote ... unless you vote for the political leaders we need, then nothing will change. Reduce meat consumtion, which is a big driver of climate change, and cut out all single use plastic in your daily life."

- Gloria Fluxa Thienemann, Vice-Chairman and CEO, Iberostar Group
- Enric Sala, Explorer-in-Residence, National Geographic Society
- Brett Jenks, President and CEO, Rare
In the last few years, considerable progress has been made towards achieving the goal of 10% of coastal and marine areas conserved by 2020. The latest science, however, points to the need to be more ambitious and to protect at least 30% of the Ocean if we are to build the resilience of its ecosystems and species to climate change and also help regenerate Ocean life.
The session focused on understanding the urgency of scaling up efforts and presenting concrete solutions and investment opportunities into innovations that can fast-track conservation solutions and support the realization of the 10% target and making the ambition of the 30% by 2030 (30x30) vision at hand.
