The Marine Conservation Foundation insists on scientific research related to marine ecological balance. This time, it will work with Breguet to popularize the concept of marine protection and the harm caused by plastic pollution, and set sail to realize the goal of energy conversion of plastic waste and clean energy transformation. The ‘Race for Water Odyssey’ global tour will stop in 35 regions, providing a platform for researchers and policy makers to exchange ideas and share their experiences in protecting water, the most precious resource of humankind-water resources. . Breguet promises to provide support for this global voyage until the end of the project in 2021.
Mr. Mark Hayek said: ‘We are deeply honored and delighted to be a partner of the Marine Conservation Foundation. The Marine Conservation Foundation launched in Switzerland is an important force in international marine research activities. The marine approach is effective. As early as the early 19th century, timepieces were essential to navigation. Today we continue to have deep roots in the field of navigation to support this Odyssey sailing project that affects the common future of mankind. ‘
The Chairman of the Marine Protection Foundation, Mr. Marco Simeoni, said frankly, ‘We are honored to join Breguet as our main partner in this unique exploration journey. The original purpose of the new Odyssey sailing project is to prove to the world that human beings have Ability to solve plastic pollution, dedicated to disseminating relevant knowledge to the public, especially to foster awareness of the younger generation. Every time we stop in a different city, we will show local policy makers more effective innovations and new business models, and popularize them Benefits of sustainable economic and social environment development. The Ocean Guard uses various clean and renewable energy sources such as solar energy, hydrogen energy, and wind energy as its power, and aims to prove that 100 metric tons of ships can complete global navigation without relying on fossil energy. Energy Transformation is a reality that society needs to face today. ‘
