Cara Delevingne leads speakers at U.N.’s World Oceans Day global livestream event


Cara Delevingne is to lead the speakers at the United Nations’ Innovation For Our Ocean event on World Oceans Day (June 8, 2020).

The event will include speeches, panels, and presentations, from key speakers including Cara, Bill McKibben, Paul Hawken, Ali Velshi, and Jean-Michel Cousteau, and has been produced in partnership with the non-profit Oceanic Global.

The Carnival Row actress, who last year teamed up with progressive organization Advaya to launch EcoResolution, a platform that encourages people from all over the world to take action against the climate and ecological crisis and co-create a world that prospers, will oversee the opening remarks at the event.

The sessions featured throughout the day will include a general overview of the state of the oceans by environmentalist McKibben, a presentation by Hawken, a multi-generational conversation between Jean-Michel Cousteau, Celine Cousteau and Fabien Cousteau, and a panel discussion with a wide range of voices, including Tom Szaky, founder of TerraCycle, and the youth activist Lilly Platt.

The transmission of the event will take place between 10 am and 5 pm ET here.
