Here are a few pics from the Children's Clean Ocean Summit at the UN -- find more in the image gallery. It was amazing. Titled "The Last Whale" after our humpback whale sculpture and in recognition of what will happen if we don't change, it was run entirely by kids and was an extraordinarily powerful day full of learning and hope and the promise of a world engaged by a whole new set of imaginative, intelligent, forward-looking voices. Just what we so desperately need.
