Citi Private Bank Presents Blue Water EduFest – 3rd to 6th November 2022
Marine conservation champions from around the region are expected to converge in Singapore for the inaugural Blue Water EduFest organised by ONE15 Events Management (“ONE°15”), a subsidiary of SUTL Enterprise Limited (“SUTL”), this November.
Taking place from 3 to 6 November 2022 at the ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove Singapore, the four-day event seeks to promote and raise awareness about marine conservation and to highlight the efforts of eco-champions around the region. Partnered by Sentosa Development Corporation and International Seakeepers Society Asia, it is targeted at policy makers and industry players involved in infrastructure development, boaters and yacht owners, entrepreneurs and social-preneurs, eco-personalities and celebrities, media influencers and individuals with a keen interest in protecting the world’s oceans.
This event is presented by Citi Private Bank. Citi has a track record of over two decades work across sustainability, partnering with multiple stakeholders to address the growing challenges and opportunities related to sustainable development.
The Guest of Honour for the inaugural event is Mr Desmond Lee, Minister for National Development and Minister-in-Charge of Social Services. There has been increasing focus on the protection of marine biodiversity in Singapore hence the inception of Blue Water EduFest as an annual crucial platform for all relevant stakeholders to build, connect and unite as one cohesive community to make a significant impact in protecting our oceans for future generations.
Blue Water EduFest will have three components. The first is a two-day conference titled “Ocean Collective Summit” organised in partnership with International Seakeepers Society Asia featuring international and regional speakers with content that focuses on urban reef conservation and efforts to stop ocean plastic pollution. Lined up to deliver the keynote speech at the conference is renowned Oceanographic Explorer and aquanaut, Fabien Cousteau.
The second component includes a nightly fund-raising event with two key highlights; the “Blue Water Heroes Awards”, which will honour and recognise individuals and organisations that have contributed to ocean conservation in Southeast Asia. Nominations for the awards will open in June and will be judged by key representatives from World Wildlife Fund for Nature Singapore (WWF-Singapore), ONE°15, National University of Singapore (NUS) – Tropical Marine Science Institute and GenT (part of Tatler Asia). The criteria used will include the nominees’ work in contributing to ground-breaking solutions and technological advancements that have benefitted marine conservation efforts in the past two years.
The second event highlight is a nightly charity auction that showcases a curated list of items with sustainable features or values with proceeds going to beneficiaries such as WWF- Singapore and International SeaKeepers Society Asia. In partnership with WWF-Singapore, the event proceeds will support WWF-Singapore’s conservation work that includes working with local researchers to understand and protect the marine biodiversity and species that live around Sentosa and the Southern Islands.
The third component will be a Mini Sustainable Luxury Showcase by makers of electric vehicles, timepieces, yachts and jewellery, with sustainable initiatives and values.
The Blue Water EduFest is opened to the public. Ticket sales have started and is available online at www.bluewateredufest.com. Proceeds will go to WWF-Singapore, International SeaKeepers Society Asia and Blue Water Edufest which will be used to fund marine conservation efforts and future editions of the ocean conservation event respectively.
