Following the European Sustainable Development Week, Energy Observer, the first hydrogen vessel around the world is launching « Energy Observer Solutions », its online media of short formats broadcasted on social networks and on a dedicated digital platform.
These original films aim to highlight the action of pioneers who are innovating for a cleaner future and raise public awareness of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set by the UN for the Agenda 2030, of which Energy Observer is the first French ambassador.
10 YEARS TO TRANSFORM THE WORLD
Limiting climate change, ending extreme poverty, combating gender inequality, protecting biodiversity more than ever…. It is the duty of all of us to act, to learn to live in harmony with our environment and transform the world by 2030. Two years ago, Energy Observer embarked on an unprecedented 6-year odyssey, 101 stopovers and 50 countries, to meet the men and women who are innovating for a cleaner and more united planet.
Led by Victorien Erussard, Captain and Founder and Jérôme Delafosse, Expedition Leader and Film Director, this catamaran of the future sails using a revolutionary energy mix that combines renewable energies and carbon-free hydrogen. Thus, it draws its energy from nature without damaging it and tests technologies in extreme environments to prove their universality.
MORE THAN A BOAT, A MEDIA FOR THE PLANET
Today, Energy Observer is becoming a media. A digital platform that highlights local solutions. All over the world, pioneers are reinventing agriculture, energy, economy, mobility, finding solutions to protect biodiversity and proving that another world is possible. The aim of this media is to raise awareness among as many people as possible and to bring together a community of committed actors beyond borders.
All these solutions are gathered for the first time in a dedicated digital platform and illustrated through a web-series in 1000 short episodes over 6 years, under the prism of the Sustainable Development Goals, also in conjunction with UNESCO and its UNESCO Green Citizens initiative.
Victorien Erussard, Captain and founder of Energy Observer and first French ambassador for the Sustainable Development Goals: “Energy Observer is a demonstrator of tomorrow’s energies, both renewable energies and human energies that unite around the challenges faced with sustainable development. Through this project and this new media, we hope to have an international impact and show that solutions can be applied everywhere in the world.
Everyone, at their own level, can act. Our project shows it: this boat that we imagined, dreamed of, has been sailing for 2 years now. It proves that nothing is impossible and that civil society actors can really move the lines and reinvent an inspiring and optimistic future.”
Jérôme Delafosse, Expedition leader and Film director:
“All the encounters we have had have particularly marked us and given us a lot of hope. Everyone can play a role, invent new and fairer societal systems, set up concrete projects and innovations that will have a visible positive impact in their neighborhood, their city or even their country. All sustainable development goals are linked. It’s amazing to see how interconnected everything is. This is also what we wanted to show through our media and videos: the diversity of these solution “bearers”, but also the interrelationship of objectives with each other: we will not solve the climate crisis without taking measures against inequalities and defending social and solidarity-based justice, or without promoting more responsible innovations and new infrastructures. Our boat is not only a technological laboratory for energy transformation, it is an inspiration, an opportunity for encounters and exchanges. Today we are proud that it is becoming a medium for the planet.”
Far from sensationalism or denunciation, « Energy Observer Solutions » is a positive media that shows that there are solutions to a large number of problems. This unique medium goes into the heart of the solutions, to meet those who act and implement their project on their own scale.
« Energy Observer Solutions » is thus an authentic, embodied and inspiring medium, the first media present on land and at sea.
