The community’s purpose and commitment? No less than 30% of all oceans cleaned and protected before 2030.

Speaker and humanist Igor Beuker: I Love to Inspire Tech to do Good & Social Innovation

Igor Beuker, who already spoke at the Novak Djokovic Foundation, explains with a smile: “This year started with big energy and speaking invitations for World Economic Forum in Davos and the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. But when a team of Ocean lovers, powered by rockstar entrepreneur and philanthropist Sir Richard Branson asked me to help to save our oceans,  my answer was yes, of course.”

Beuker adds: “Necker Island is like Jurassic Park 2.0, but this little paradise sets the benchmark for the world in very authentic ways. For me, Tour 1 to Necker Island was beyond bucket list. I experienced complete harmony between nature and mankind. Rockstar Richard Branson is again breaking with the status quo and setting new benchmarks for our entire society.”
