The Resiliency of the Oceans

The world is a big place and it's easy to feel like our actions don't matter. But the truth is, everything we do has an impact. And when we work within our communities, we have greater impact. Our oceans are a perfect example of this. They cover 70% of the earth's surface and play a vital role in regulating the planet's climate.

Have you ever stopped to think about the resiliency of the oceans? The oceans have a profound impact on the entire planet, even in areas that seem very remote from the sea. It plays a vital role in regulating the Earth's climate. The waves roll up on the shoreline, cleansing and soothing us.

This short video explores the interconnection between all of nature on Earth and the planet itself. It is a reminder of how our actions in one part of the world can have a ripple effect on the health elsewhere on the earth. The group of horses in community and the town of Cefalu to remind us that our actions work best at the community level. As it is a big tourist destination, it is a nod that everything in the tourism sector needs to evaluate its sustainability and resilience within the communities as well. Images are from around the world, from the South Pacific Ocean to the island of Sicily. I try to show beauty to inspire others to act in ways to encourage the resiliency of the oceans.

Many thanks to The Post Carbon Institute for their exploration of the relationship between sustainability and resilience in the most recent Think Resilience Course! And thanks for creating the What's Next for Earth? project, bringing people together from around the world in a creative way. to share their ideas and visions for the future of our planet.
