An ambassador becomes “Plastic Pirate”

Didier M., a former Planète Urgence volunteer, wore the colours of the association during the “Pirates of Plastics” operation on May 23 and will participate again on Sunday June 27, 2021 in Marseille. The purpose of this operation is to remove plastic from the beaches of the Prado and to raise awareness of zero waste bathers. 

 

A commitment beyond its volunteering missions 

 

The commitment of this former researcher at the CEA with Planète Urgence began in 2010 with his first volunteer mission which was quickly followed by several others: in short, he carried out volunteer missions in France, Argentina, Morocco , Indonesia, Guinea, Ecuador, Indonesia, Zimbabwe and Benin. 

His commitment to Planète Urgence did not stop there since he is now an active member of the association’s network of ambassadors in the Provence-Alpes-Côtes-d’Azur region. 

“Being an ambassador also means sharing my concerns and my enthusiasm,” says Didier. 

“Sharing my concerns means succeeding in making others aware of the current challenges for the planet and therefore for humanity. Both in terms of ecosystem protection and life balance! And sharing my enthusiasm means, with Planète Urgence, being able to offer effective means of action in the field. » 

An event at the service of the marine ecosystem   

 

The “Plastic Pirates” operation in which Didier will take part on June 27th is proposed by the Calanques National Park in Marseille to raise awareness of the cleanliness of the sea. In partnership with the SNM, a nautical company, the operation will have at his disposal about twenty sailboats. The Pirates will parade at sea from the Old Port to the Corniche to disembark in paddleboards and kayaks on the Prado beaches. Boarding and death to waste! 

A network of ambassadors essential to life in the Planète Urgence region 

 

If Didier can represent Planète Urgence thanks to this action, it is because he is part of the network of ambassadors called Planète Solidaire. This network is a group of committed voluntary actors who contribute to the influence of the association in the various French regions. It was built with the wish of several volunteers who had returned from their missions to continue their commitment to Planète Urgence. The ambassadors thus organize or participate in targeted actions according to their appetites: sponsoring a future volunteer, prospecting for potential partners, organizing a local event or even supporting fundraising for the association by relaying donation campaigns. 

So, if you also want to go further in your commitment, are a former volunteer or simply want to contribute as a volunteer to the actions of Planète Urgence, join the Planète Solidaire community!
