ART: Collaborators Marry Art & Sport

Described as a unique collaboration of art and sport, 11th Hour Racing is collaborating with The Ocean Agency to provide a database of photos that engage the public with information on mangroves, coral reefs, and seagrass conservation plus sustainability issues.

Driven by a philosophy of “local solutions to global problems”, 11th Hour Racing will sponsor one of The Ocean Agency’s three Ocean Decade Creative Communication Toolkits that focuses on mangroves. The partners are also producing a video detailing the impact of climate change on the ocean from a sailor’s perspective.

The Ocean Decade Creative Communication Toolkits will include free access to professional-quality images, video, infographics, and information for non-commercial and approved commercial use. The agency is set to introduce two more toolkits focusing on coral reef and seagrass ecosystems in August and September 2021.

The Ocean Change Video will feature professional sailor Charlie Enright, co-founder and skipper of 11th Hour Racing Team. The video aims to reach and inspire mainstream audiences by conveying the spirit and excitement of ocean racing and the idea of overcoming tough challenges.

The initiatives are part of a program developed with UNESCO for the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. The mangrove Toolkit will launch alongside the UNESCO Exhibition of Creativity for the Ocean Decade in Paris, France on World Mangrove Day, July 26, 2021.
