Project Description

The Coastal Conference will feature a series of engaging sessions, including talks by distinguished speakers from various organizations, documentary screenings, and opportunities to connect with local vendors who share our commitment to sustainability. Through these activities, we aim to inspire, educate, and foster a sense of responsibility towards our coastal environments.


This project has been created in commemoration of the lives of all the victims of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, including two Ocean Bridge ambassadors, Danielle Moore and Micah Messent. We aspire to carry on their legacy and commitment to making the world a better place by creating long-lasting impacts with a firm commitment to driving positive change for the environment and our ocean. We will never forget the light that Danielle and Micah brought to the world and will continue to keep them in our hearts. To learn more about these two amazing people, please visit: Honouring Danielle and Micah  – Ocean Wise. This work is partially funded by the Commemoration Fund for Victims of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 Tragedy.
