Join for an inspiring discussion between OWOO Ocean Hero Roz Savage and Drew Dellinger on their passion and work on behalf of planet.

Roz Savage is an ocean rower, environmental campaigner, author, speaker, and a true ocean hero. She is an inspiration to all ocean lovers out there, holding four world records for ocean rowing, including the impressive record of first woman to row solo across the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. In her 23-foot rowboat she has rowed over 15,000 miles and spent over 500 days at sea.

On August 6, 2013 at 12:00pm PST, tune in HERE to watch live as Roz and writer/activist and poet Drew Dellinger discuss the intersection of cosmology and art, and how passion for the planet can break through destructive stories and create a new landscape of possibility.

Hosted by the Pachamama Alliance, whose work empowers indigenous people of the Amazon rainforest to preserve their lands and culture, you can participate in the conversation by joining the live Question and Answer session and group discussions. If you can’t join live, but want to watch later, there will also be a video of the event posted online.

We met Roz when she came to the One World One Ocean headquarters in Laguna Beach to be part of our Ocean Heroes video series. She completely impressed us with her dedication, passion, and love of the ocean. To see our inspiring interview with Roz, watch the video below, in which she explains how she carries such a sense of a mission – wanting to communicate with people on a large scale and inspiring change, for, “if the planet isn’t healthy, how can we possibly be healthy?”

In addition to her stunning accomplishments as a rower, Roz is an accomplished author and speaker, having written two books and given a TED talk about her special relationship to the ocean and why she so desperately wants to help and protect it. Click here to watch it.

Roz and Drew’s discussion on August 6 is sure to be a moving and inspiring chance to learn about their work and get involved, because, as Roz says, you just have to take it one oar stroke at a time.
