Mission Statement

Together we, both adults and us children, can do more to protect our planet’s oceans. We must. For if we don’t revolutionize our thinking, someday there may very well be a last whale.

Description

Over 5 trillion pieces of plastic fill our oceans. 269,000 tons floats along the surface, while four billion plastic microfibers/km2 litter the deep sea. The decimation to wildlife and food webs is unfathomable. And the problem continues to worsen.

Children are deeply horrified by these appalling facts. And the kids at our school (12 year olds) were driven to action, deciding to bring attention to this tragic problem by building a 5-meter-long humpback whale sculpture made from the same trash that desecrates our planet’s life and beauty.

But they felt it wasn’t nearly enough. And so the children organized the world’s first children’s Clean Ocean Summit, which will be held in May or June of 2018 at the United Nations in Vienna, Austria, to decide for themselves exactly what must be done, and share their perspectives with the world.

They will call on many others in Vienna to join them-children representing an enormous variety of countries. To join in alliance with each other and the UN and make their voice heard in taking a firm stand against ocean pollution. The Summit will be called "The Last Whale" and they’ll additionally like to temporarily install their sculpture at the UN.

Together we can do more to protect our planet’s oceans. We must. For if we don’t revolutionize our thinking, someday there may very well be a last whale.
