I’d love to share my story with you of my work with an organization called Worldrise fighting to protect our beautiful ocean. To finish my master’s in Environmental Management and Sustainable Development, I chose to study the educational and communication investments in marine conservation to improve community knowledge and behavior.
I was connected with Mariasole Bianco, the founder of Worldrise, through Charlotte Vick while working at the COP21 events for the Sylvia Earle Alliance. Mariasole Bianco is an Italian Environmental Scientist and expert in Marine Conservation and management of Marine Protected Areas (MPA). She founded Worldrise in 2013 to promote grassroots marine conservation projects in Italy providing a platform for local communities and university students to develop environmental educational programs and sustainable development projects.
