The Team Malizia‘s science and education programme is immersed in the climate and ocean campaign “A Race we must win – Climate Action Now!”. On the occasion of The Ocean Race, the Team Malizia has organised the first sustainable debate panel “Ocean & Climate change – understanding the interdependencies, risks and consequences and why data plays an important role?” by inviting international guests and their partners to discuss and learn more about the intertwined effects of Ocean Health and Climate Change.
Team Malizia’s mission is to further scientificocean research, with the help of a SubCTech ocean sensor originally installed on Seaexplorer – Yacht Club de Monaco in 2018 and updated in 2020. They have created the innovative sustainability programme “My Ocean Challenge” that is supported by UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC).
EuroGOOS Secretary General Inga Lips was invited to the Malizia Sustainability Panel debate during Ocean Race start in Alicante on 13 January 2023 with Lucy Gilliam from Seas At Risk, Martin Kramp from UNESCO – Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, Kathrin Wolf from Kuehne+Nagel. As all racing boats carried a scientific equipment on board, the panel discussion focused very much on the relevance and importance of data in the overall climate change debate and how it can help to trigger change in society, industry and politics.
