Throughout history the ocean has been an unalterable constant. A vast and incorruptible truth of our planet's design. Blue, swirling around the small patches of our continent's green. The lifeblood of our Earth. A source of food, trade, and weather patterns. The ocean defines our planet and provides sustenance to billions.  

Just beneath the surface of this great, endless quilt hides the damage we have caused. A damage to which we have long been blind. We have created an ecological crisis that cannot be traced to a single cause. Evidence confirms that the changes observed today will intensify in the coming years.  

NEWS

Hirondelle and her crew are in Loctudy, in the Bigouden region, social distancing until the end of the confinement period.

OUR BELIEF

Despite overwhelming scientific evidence, an obstacle remains: raising public awareness on the immediate impacts of current changes. Studies in climate change communication show a dominant discourse depicting an ecological crisis that is distant both in time and space. We must engage the public in order to enact real change. After all, humans, who are at the origin of this crisis, are key to solving it. 

OUR GOAL

Highlight the stories behind the ecological crisis, with an emphasis on the interconnectivity between humans and the ocean, through a series of interviews in the North East Atlantic.  We aim to narrate this coast undergoing change, recording the tales of the people who live them and act everyday alongside our waters.  

THE SAILBOAT

Hirondelle - or "Swallow" in French - is the name of the schooner we are sailing, our mobile office. With her two wooden masts, three booms and six sails, she transports us island to island and harbour to harbour, rythmed by the wind and the crew's objectives.
