The Generation That Will Save the Ocean

TEDx Mountain View | April 28, 2016

This talk was aimed at high school students in Silicon Valley, calling on them to join in the fight to save the ocean.

Earth’s oceans are in immediate peril from climate change, pollution, and unsustainable fishing. We have one generation left to save them. Who will be the ones to change the attitudes and behaviors of billions around the world?

They are the next generation of scientists, engineers, artists, and activists who were born digital and raised social. What will they need to do to save our oceans? Tom applies his inventor’s mind for innovation with his entrepreneur’s penchant for leadership, and lays out a roadmap for how we can move our relationship to the ocean from exploitation by the few to stewardship by us all.
