Ulysse Nardin | The Ocean Race
Ulysse Nardin has announced its collaboration with The Ocean Race. Together, these two “natives of the sea” have committed to the responsible use and conservation of the world’s oceans, setting sail together on a decade of action.
Both partners believe that time is critical for the regeneration of marine life and of the ocean itself, and that setting specific deadlines for action will promote significant progress. Urgency is the key to making progress as threats to the ocean are escalating and devastating the marine environment.
The initiative is built on three main pillars: The Ocean Race Summits, a series of high-level forums to design improved policy for the ocean, address global challenges using local innovation and best practices; a Learning Programme which inspires and empowers young people around ocean issues and features learning modules in nine languages; and an innovative Science Programme, that uses the race boats and sailors to collect critical water and atmospheric data from remote ocean areas, to further scientific research into the state of seas and changing climate.
As part of the United Nations SDG 14 commitment, Ulysse Nardin is committed to keeping track of the scientific research required to make a difference. However, time is critical with milestone dates having been set to keep these advances on track; the first date for positive results is 2030. A symbolic countdown to this 2030 milestone will be featured on the Ulysse Nardin website as well as on www.theoceanrace.com.
