Right at the start of the spring semester 2020, the EMC organized a double event: Save the Oceans! – with the aim to not just meet likeminded students, but also to create awareness for the problems of our oceans.
The first part of the event took place on February 18, 2020. The constant pollution of our oceans is a devastating fact and Emerging Markets can play a crucial role in saving them. In order to raise awareness for this cause, Vera Bürgi from Ocean Care Switzerland talked about the work of OceanCare, who have been committed to marine wildlife protection since 1989. Through research and conservation projects, campaigns, environmental education, and involvement in a range of important international committees, OceanCare undertakes concrete steps to improve the situation for wildlife in the world’s oceans.
The day after, the second part of this double event took place, we organized a beach party-themed fundraiser for this cause.
