Momoa said at an event in Portugal ahead of the UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon: “Without healthy ocean life, our planet as we know it would not exist.”
The Hollywood actor famous for his role as DC Comics’ Aquaman was cheered on as he spoke on a Portuguese beach. He spoke to dozens of young activists and spoke about the issues facing the world’s oceans.
“We must seek to right the wrongs we have done to our children and grandchildren, turn the tide of our irresponsible stewardship, and build momentum for a future where humanity can once again live in harmony with nature,” he said. said Momoa.
7,000 people are expected to attend the UN Ocean Conference which runs from June 27 to July 1. The event has been postponed since 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
UN Secretary General António Guterres also spoke at the event and apologized to young activists for his generation not doing enough to fight climate change, save the ocean and protect biodiversity.
“Even today we are moving too slowly…we are still moving in the wrong direction,” Guterres said, also pointing the finger at the fossil fuel industry. “It is time that these behaviors were seriously condemned.”
Momoa would become the United Nations Environment Program’s advocate for life under water. To learn more about the UN Ocean Conference, check out their website and sign this petition to help protect oceans and wildlife!
