Journey with us to the year 2022, a year that marked the dawn of a transformative adventure. It all began on January 9th, when Pangaea X set sail on its inaugural voyage. Our mission was clear, and our focus was resolute – ocean conservation. We set out to ignite environmental consciousness within French-speaking communities across Europe (between 16 to 25 y.o), laying the foundation for a global transformation slated for 2023.
As we ventured forward, ten exceptional teams emerged from a passionate pool of applicants. These teams embarked on a transformative journey, guided by a team of ten dedicated coaches.
After 6 months of dedication and innovation, 5 teams emerged as finalists. They not only secured recognition for their outstanding efforts but also received prizes that would further their commitment to ocean conservation.
Themes : What if we innovated to preserve our oceans?
Reducing marine pollution
PROTECT AND RESTORE MARINE ECOSYSTEMS
THE DEVELOPING A CIRCULAR ECONOMY
PROMOTE SUSTAINABLE FISHING
Limiting plastic waste
The heartbeat of Pangaea X 2022 was encapsulated in a resounding theme: “Protect Our Oceans.” It was a powerful call to action, an invitation for passionate individuals to unite in the protection of our oceans, recognizing them as vital ecosystems in need of our care and attention.
The Pangaea X program, develop with the help of the Maxime Dumont, emphasized environmental innovation and leadership. The program revolved around key elements, with a particular focus on understanding the direct and indirect impact on the environment. With a strong emphasis on business planning, participants developed well-structured business plans to drive lasting environmental impact through innovation and leadership.
On Friday, September 16, 2022, the grand finale of the first edition of Pangaea X took place at Station F. Each team had 10 minutes to pitch their project to the jury, followed by 15 minutes of questions. After more than 2 hours of deliberation, the jury members elected a winning team “Bionet”. A final ceremony was also held on the same day where the teams received different prizes. Among them :

Mike often says that without his wife Cathy, he would not be the man we know today. Responsible for the logistics, financing and communication of all his expeditions, Cathy’s unconditional support allowed Mike to stand out and make himself known to a global audience. She passed away from cancer in 2015, and we would like to honor her by presenting the “Cathy’s Award” to the team that best communicates and publicizes their project.
Team Oyster stood out for their communication. Not only are they active on social media, they are also present in the most traditional media.
