Thomas Lesage, who has just turned 16 years old, is the founder of the NGO « Children for the Oceans » created in June 2018. In September 2018, he started a worldwide sailing tour for the protection of the oceans during which he gave awareness sessions to more than 400 kids worldwide. Back to France last February, he now works within the NGO in order to set up a worldwide network of ocean ambassadors. Today, Children for the Oceans counts 10 ocean ambassadors worldwide.
Children for the Oceans aims at increasing the awareness of children of the protection of the oceans, setting up partnerships with NGOs in Asia, developing projects associating ocean and arts while attending international conferences to make the voice of children heard by the decision makers and representatives of the national and international authorities.
Thomas would like to keep working as an ocean advocate to contribute to protect the ocean at his level.
