Oceans' Alarm! Who cares...? - Documentary Tour

Oceans' Alarm! - Who cares...? - Documentary Tour 

Hardly a day goes by without news of the disastrous state of our oceans. Not only the clearly visible waste increases rapidly, also the pollution by micro plastic rises alarmingly quick.

“Once in the ocean, plastic breaks down into tiny fragments, micro plastics. Along with all industrial chemicals which have drained into the ocean these form a potentially toxic soup.“  (Sir David Attenborough, Broadcaster and Naturalist)  

A lot has happened since the idea for this documentary trip came up 2 years ago. The issues of endangered oceans, rising sea levels, and pollution from plastic waste are being taken more and more seriously by politics and the media, also thanks to movements like "Extinction Rebellion" or "Fridays For Future".

But still many human beings don‘t feel addressed by these issues because, for example, they live far away from the coast or because they are not aware that everyone can do something. In countless conversations we found out that a lot of people can‘t or don‘t want to understand the relationship of cause and effect.

Most of them are convinced that they have nothing to do with the problem, for different reasons:

they don’t expect themselves to be part of the problem
they don‘t receive enough relevant information
they shut their eyes to the facts and tell themselves that everything can’t be that bad
they are not interested in environmental issues because they live according to the motto "the devil may care, none of my business".
they think that the individual can not change anything, because it is all up to the politicians
and so on…

“Most people can't see the connection between their own lives and the oceans.“  (Captain Paul Watson, Marine Wildlife Conservation and Environmental Activist) 

We visit ordinary folks on the shores who are directly working against the pollution of the oceans or who are otherwise engaged in environmental protection near the coast. As individuals, in groups or as supporters of corresponding projects and organisations.

Everybody can do something, even without living by the sea. We want to convey this without moral pointing finger, not lecturing, not condescending, but rather in an entertaining way.

We present men, women, kids who enjoy getting involved. Through a positive approach we want to motivate other people to open up to serious and threatening issues and we want to show that it can also be fun to be active. Despite the ignorance or even aggressiveness of climate change deniers.

“It is the worst of times but it is the best of times, because we still have a chance.“  (Dr. Sylvia Earle, Oceanographer)

Among other things, we report on "plastic-free" cities and shops, committed school projects, marine wildlife activists, sustainable tourism, innovative ideas, beach clean-ups, measures against overfishing, salvage of ghost fishing nets…

In order to reach as many people as possible, the features / interviews are published through different ways:

as audio features / reports 
as video clips and podcasts 
as a 90-minute documentary 
All publications will be available online on different channels.

Our first tour takes us to the European Atlantic coasts (including the North Sea, English Channel, Irish Sea, etc.). The route includes Ireland, Northern Ireland, England, Wales, Scotland, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Portugal and Spain.

Simple life and low travel costs keep the budget and our carbon footprints as small as possible. And to do so, we decided to completely dispense with motorized vehicles and instead travel by bicycle. Quite a challenge, but at least we want to try it.
To cope with the whole thing by bike, we have to make some changes to the equipment and the travel planning.
It would be wonderful if you would support our mission. We are grateful even for the smallest amount. 

We would also be delighted if you help us spread the word. Please recommend us and share the link to our site. 

Thanks for taking the time to look at our project!
Oceans' Alarm! Who cares...? 
WE DO!
And we hope you do too.

“Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans.“ (Jacques Yves Cousteau, Oceanographer)

Every drop in the ocean counts
