On the 20 th of December I presented for the second time the GO BLU3 initiative, and the BLU3 GOUNA project.
The presentation was well attended with over 30 participants including our hosts of the Rotary Club of Red Sea - El Gouna. The event lasted well over 2 hours, and was nicely debated by the audience.
Here's what Rotary had to say:
"Tonight we had great pleasure to welcome our guest speaker OceanRoamer Henri Hemmerechts who shared his initiative for a Blu3 Gouna.
The fascinating not for profit community fueled project was inspired and developed in Sudan, and the initiative began here in 2015.
We live in a community where everyone earns a living from the Red Sea that is being threatened from many different angles.
The project covered many ideas from coral nurseries, to creating accessible dive sites from land, and ways to deal with the silt in the lagoons.
Henri's complete presentation will soon be available to watch online and the link will be shared from our Facebook page.
Rotary Club of Red Sea - El Gouna looks forward to supporting the Blu3 Gouna project in the very near future."
