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 ARTE, WWF Greece, the European documentary network Moving Docs, Greek 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!

"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."
AUTHENTIC BIG BLUE
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.
#MyBlue runs under the auspices of the Greek Tourism Organisation in collaboration with ARTE, WWF Greece, Moving Docs, Greek Travel Pages and Anemon.
