The Ocean Mapping Expedition in Singapore

Visit Swiss ketch Fleur de Passion 17-19 march 2018

Join in and feel the spirit of adventure in the wake of Magellan

Discover The Ocean Mapping Expedition, a 4-year journey (2015-2019) around the world in the wake of Magellan combining science, education and culture some 500 years after the first ever circumnavigation, through the unique opportunity to visit 33m long Swiss ketch Fleur de Passion, a former WWII German Navy minesweeper turned into a sailboat in the mid-70’s and since then dedicated to peaceful activities for the common good under the umbrella of Geneva-based non-for-profit Fondation Pacifique. Learn more about her mission as an ideal platform for scientific programs on noise pollution and micro-plastic pollution of the oceans, for observations of coral bleaching due to global warming and for monitoring greenhouse gases on the surface of the oceans. Also experiment how such a sailing boat is the privileged setting for discovering life on the high seas, one's fellow human beings and one's own self through socio-educational programs.
