In response to an article about my work in the Vancouver Sun, a woman from the David Suzuki Foundation emailed me about the work of some musicians bringing attention to the plight of our oceans. Their website explains best what they do.
The Jellyfish Project is an educational initiative focused on generating awareness among youth about the declining health of our world’s oceans and our environment at large. Through the power of music and live performance, students are engaged into the environmental conversation and are given information on how to become active participants in the sustainability movement.
These guys are perfect examples of caring about what you know about. They talk about having grown up near the ocean and spending their childhoods in and around the water. It’s because of those experiences that they now want to protect something that gave them so much enjoyment and as a result they now have a huge appreciation for oceans and marine life.
Everyone can find their passion, at any age. Sometimes those passions are obvious, other times, well – not so much. The only requirement is that you have to be willing to look for them. If you haven’t found yours yet, keep looking and remember “if you are passionate about it, pursue it, no matter what anyone else thinks. That’s how dreams are achieved.”
