ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION. Does commitment to environmental protection have an economic benefit? If so, how can it be calculated? In THE POWER OF ACTIVISM, the value of environmental activism is examined from an economic perspective. Three Australian women—Madison Stewart, Alice Forrest, and Jordyn de Boer—aim to promote marine and environmental conservation through a wide variety of projects. Whether it's shark preservation in Indonesia, sustainable tourism in Antarctica, or recyclable cloth bags instead of plastic, Madison, Alice, and Jordyn are challenging the practices that are contributing to climate change. To give their work a numerical dimension, the three activists embark on an exciting journey to translate the financial value of their efforts on the environment with one of Australia’s top actuarial economists—and the results are astonishing.
We are proudly presenting the new face of the International OCEAN FILM TOUR VOLUME 9: Madison Stewart.
Protecting sharks is Madison's passion. The young Australian has launched Project HIU, an initiative in Indonesia which aims to provide alternative income to local fishermen. By hiring their shark fishing boats for surfing trips she tries to convince them that working in tourism is a real alternative to the lucrative but bloody business of shark finning.
Madison @sharkgirlmadison is one of three young activists in the film “The Power of Activism“ who are using their personal commitment to advance ocean and environmental conservation.
