Today is World Oceans Day. Our region is 98% Ocean so ensuring Pacific led-solutions are locally owned, and locally led is critical for the health of our planet.
“We are asking you to slow down and reflect on our past to protect our Ocean and knowledge together,” Sakiasi Karavanua, Mata-Ni-Tikina Moturiki Island, Fiji. This is one story that shows the impact of Pacific-led solutions. Listening to Pacific people will help drive the solutions we need for the Ocean we want.
Safe, sustainable sea-transport is more critical now than it ever has been for the peoples of the Pacific.
The project showcased in this documentary is the work of the Uto ni Yalo Trust in partnership with Moturiki Communities in Fiji. Their vision is to help transition back to forms of traditional navigation to reduce the reliance on fossil fuels and to drive safety at sea and sustainable ocean practices into the future.
