Washington D.C. – CLC Advisors, LLC CEO Cindy Chin was invited to attend the “Our Ocean” Conference hosted by Secretary of State John Kerry at the Department of State in Washington D.C. In the days and weeks leading up to the conference, citizens everywhere were invited to participate and follow along via social media using hashtag #OurOcean2014 and through the department’s first Thunderclap, Show Your Love of Our Ocean photo campaign, and the Protect Our Ocean Call to Action.
“Protecting and promoting a healthy environment is essential for the survival of our children and generations to come.”
– U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
“Protecting our ocean is also a great necessity for global food security, given that more than 3 billion people – 50 percent of the people on this planet – in every corner of the world depend on fish as a significant source of protein. The connection between a healthy ocean and life itself for every single person on Earth cannot be overstated.”
– U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry
A dozen participants were hand picked from online applicants and 400 attendees including 3 heads of state, foreign ministers, policymakers, scientists, environmentalists, business leaders, entrepreneurs, government agencies and staff were invited to attend the conference from 90 countries.
