#MyBlue

ARE YOU IN LOVE WITH THE SEA?

'Conservation only works if you fall in love with the sea'. Inspired by the life and legacy of Jacques Mayol, #MyBlue aims to raise awareness about our connection to the ocean and the need to protect it. The campaign is based on our personal, lifelong relationship with the sea, the emotions it brings to us, the beauty of the underwater world and the effects of water on our body and soul.

#MyBlue is a collaboration between ARTEWWF Greece, the European documentary network Moving DocsGreek Travel Pages and Anemon, under the auspices of the Greek Tourism Organisation.

 

The campaign runs on social media, in parallel to the release of the documentary Dolphin Man on ARTE and the Dolphin Man VR series on arte.tv/arte360 (available since September 25th).

#MyBlue is also supported by a growing number of businesses which embrace ocean conservation and engages a global community of freedivers, conservationists, photographers, swimmers and blue activists to celebrate the beauty of the sea!

DIMITRIS KARAVELLAS

WWF Greece General Manager

"The sea gives life all around the world. And whenever we agree on the measures to adopt and we start protecting some areas, the marine ecosystems recover. The oceans can continue giving life to us if we take care of them."

MEHGAN HEANEY-GRIER

Conservationist & Freediving Champion, USA

"As a people, as a society, we have gotten so far away from nature. You get on that treadmill and then you stop and take a step back and realise that you're having a huge nature deficit. Especially with our kids, we have this opportunity to find an equilibrium, to seek out that nature, and bring that back into our lives."

ALEXIS DUVIVIER

Apnea Champion, France

"When I dive, I get a few minutes cut off from the exterior world. It’s the silence, the discovery of the sea and the life it carries… it’s pure happiness. It’s that freedom of having a few minutes to yourself."

HIGHLIGHTS

AUTHENTIC BIG BLUE

AMORGOS REVISITED

Amorgos Island revives the unique and mythical movie “Le Grand Bleu” by organizing a free-diving event, 30 years after the film's release.

Hosted on the island of Amorgos, the first international competition Authentic Big Blue took place in September 2017 and is planned to be staged annually. 

Alongside the main free-diving event, Amorgos hosts a gastronomy festival, so athletes, guests, fans and the public can experience the flavors of the local Greek products and cuisine and showcase the nation’s culinary skills.
