Blue CineONU film coverTo mark Ocean Week 2020, the United Nations and Oceana presented: ‘Blue’

BLUE is the story our generation need to hear. The industrialization that has occurred in the oceans over the last century, mirrors the events that triggered mass extinctions on land. Industrial-scale fishing, habitat destruction, species loss and pollution have placed the ocean in peril. The very nature of the sea is being irretrievably altered. BLUE is a provocative journey into the ocean realm, witnessing this critical moment in time when the marine world is on a precipice.


The film was followed by a panel discussion with:

  • Leo Not Happy, Belgian Activist
  • Nicolas Fournier, Policy and Advocacy Manager, Oceana
  • Thierry Lucas, Senior Programme Officer in the United Nations Environment Programme’s Brussels Office, UNEP
  • Moderated by: Deborah Seward, Director of UNRIC


This film is in English and has a run time of 76 minutes
