Event with UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development

WE ARE OCEAN Vancouver: Cease Wyss’s ocean botany

IOC-UNESCO invited ARTPORT_making waves to propose a session for the Ocean Decade Laboratories
Laboratory 1: “An Inspiring and Engaging Ocean” Satellite Activities and accepted our “WE ARE OCEAN Vancouver: Cease Wyss’s ocean botany” online event.

About

Cease Wyss’s ocean botany private lesson brings the ocean of British Columbia, Canada, to the curator Anne-Marie Melster, teaching her all about the interconnection of medicinal plants of British Columbia and their impact on ocean health. It will be an introduction to this vast botanical and marine topic and the audience is invited to participate with questions and reports of their experiences. The chosen interactive format is “fishbowl one-on-one” which means that two main characters will lead the discussion and in each chapter one participant from the audience is invited to interact. The format is not only interactive but also participatory and makes the online session more accessible and attractive for the viewer. This event is growing out of “WE ARE OCEAN, Vancouver” which is a commissioned by the Vancouver Biennale. ARTPORT_making waves invited the Canadian artists T’uy’t’tanat Cease Wyss and Olivier Salvas to work with Vancouver school students from October 2020 until summer 2021. The project is an artistic contribution to the Preparatory Phase of the UN Decade Of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030).

We Don’t Have Time is a social network for everyone who wants to be a part of the solution to the climate crisis. The power of many enables us to influence businesses, politicians and world leaders. But We Don’t Have Time to wait.

Cause

Global warming threatens our existence. The evidence is there. This is a time of crisis–and it’s a crisis of our own making. We created this situation, and we can set things straight. Together we are the solution. But we don’t have time to wait.

A movement is growing, a movement of people saying: “This can’t go on–we want change.” We want to connect these people. Social media has created new spaces for collaboration and collective action. Herein lies our opportunity. Together, we are stronger than the status quo. Because the status quo is nothing without us. We own this, and we can fix this, together.

We Don’t Have Time is a social media network for everyone who wants to be a part of the solution. If a large enough number of people want change, and if that energy is directed towards those in charge–change will come.

Being a member of We Don’t Have Time is free of charge and lets you create climate reviews as well as interact and follow other members.

Together we are the solution.

Organization

We Don’t Have Time is a movement and a tech startup that leverages the power of social media to hold leaders and companies accountable for climate change.

The founders and backers of We Don’t Have Time are ordinary people with various backgrounds and experiences. Aware, but not experts in this field, our lowest common denominator is that all of us at some point in life “woke up” and started to worry and learn about the Earth’s health.

We each took a decision: “I will no longer be passive and just watch. If I don’t do anything, who will do it for me?” That was the seed for We Don’t Have Time. And it’s our shared belief, motivation and ambition. The evidence is there. This is a time of crisis–and it’s a crisis of our own making. We created this situation, and we can set things straight. Together we are the solution. But we don’t have time to wait.
