Social Initiatives Hall of Fame

In 2012, the CIS Local Counsel Forum and RULG proudly introduced our new environmental initiative, extending support to ocean conservation, protection, and restoration and presenting to the Forum's delegates and guests, one of the leading organizations in this field, Mission Blue. Our initiative coincided with World Oceans Day (June 8).

"With every breath we take, with every drop of water we drink we depend on the existence of Earth's living ocean. These are assets worth protecting as if our lives depend on them because in no small measure they do."

Sylvia A. Earle, PhD.
Founder, Mission Blue
National Geographic Society

You may listen to Sylvia Earle on the Oceans and download Dr. Earle's address to the CIS Forum in English and Russian.

We are grateful to all of the Forum's attendees for their attention and would like to applaud the three Delegates who most actively participated in this initiative:
Mr. Konstantin Christie
Python & Peter
Geneva, Switzerland
Dr. Cord-Georg Hasselmann
Hengeler Mueller Partnerschaft von Rechtsanwälten
Berlin, Germany
Mr. Gaya Sobolev
Sobolev and Partners Legal Services, LLC
Tver, Russia

We invite everyone to continue extending support to protecting our precious natural resources, including a major part of the Earth's ecosystem - the world's oceans.
