“Let’s look at the Sea”

Sabine Roux de Bézieux,
Président of La Fondation de la Mer

Spirit of adventure and team spirit, curiosity and interest, these are the values ​​that drive the sea and the sailors. These values ​​are what lead us today to the creation of the Fondation de la Mer, values ​​that we have had for a long time.

Due to its presence in all the seas of the world, France is the only country in the world where the sun never sets. Provided with an exceptional maritime scope, it is in second place in terms of maritime space and has a recognized experience in all domains.

The sea is the future of our country. The future of Europe. The Fondation de la Mer will work with determination so that the rights of the sea are recognized, valued and developed in the right way.

There is already a strong mobilization around this collective adventure. May the passion that animates us be shared by all the French, the metropolis and other places, and all Europeans, that is our horizon.

The sea is the future of our country, the future of Europe.
