Meet the initiator & vice-chair of Water Revolution Foundation, Dr. Vienna Eleuteri!
Vienna is a renowned and passionate sustainability scientist with a long track record of research and work with governments and local communities to support regenerative development. Aware of the urgency of bridging the gap between what we know and what we do as urgently as possible, she has pioneered sustainability in industrial ecology in key sectors and was the first to bring these disciplines to the superyachting industry.
After her Waterevolution model was recognised as a Blue Solution by UNEP and UNESCO, she initiated the Water Revolution Foundation and today serves on the board as vice-president contributing pro-bono to the development of its programmes.
“True leadership is imperative in driving our development towards enhancing ocean protection. As Sylvia Earle wisely said, ‘there’s no green without blue,’ and this statement extends beyond environmental significance to include money and economy. We must prioritise ocean protection as the fundamental essence of our business proposition. Superyachting encompasses a remarkable community of passionate and talented individuals who hold a strategic position to comprehend this importance and spearhead change. The Water Revolution Foundation stands ready to support our industry throughout this captivating and exhilarating journey!”
