Every year, World Oceans Day reminds us of how integral the seas are to our life on earth. To mark the occasion, we wanted to highlight #myoceanchallenge, a fun and innovative sustainability programme created by our partners Team Malizia and Boris Herrmann. The aim of the challenge is to use their sailing adventures in order to educate and inspire children around the world, teaching them about the importance of climate change and ocean health.

Team Malizia’s boat is equipped with an on-board laboratory that sends vital data from some of the remotest parts of the world back to a team of dedicated scientists, in support of their mission to monitor and find a solution to ocean and climate change, ‘a race we must win’.

By teaming up with local schools, sailing clubs and institutions for under-privileged children during their global race stop-overs, young students get the chance to experience Team Malizia’s laboratory first hand, sail the boat, meet the crew and ask them questions about the ocean. This initiative also is supported by an international schools programme designed for 9-14 year olds and their teachers, who can readily access a wealth of fantastic educational materials inspired by their travels (for more information, click here).

Team Malizia and Boris Herrman’s ambition to empower young minds through their sailing adventures reinforces EFG’s own commitment to support future generations of talent and our shared desire to leave a positive legacy.
