Maldives’ Six Senses Laamu to Host Ocean Conference
September 19, 2011 10:25 PM
Six Senses Resorts & Spas will host Six Senses Water/Wo/Men, the Maldives’ first gathering of water sports icons, world’s leading water conservationists such as Fabien Cousteau and celebrity activists including actress Daryl Hannah, Foo Fighters’ Rami Jaffee and singer Beth Orton from Sept. 30 to Oct. 4 at the company’s newest resort, Six Senses Laamu.
Global industrial growth, most of it very far away, has brought the Maldives to the frontline in the battle against rising sea levels. What happens to the Maldives and its 400,000 inhabitants may foretell the future of coastal regions around the globe, and for 15 years, the resort company has led the effort to protect the 1,190 islands of the Maldives. DuringWater/Wo/Men, Sonu Shivdasani, founder and CEO, Six Senses Resorts & Spas, and ocean conservationists will lead dialogues and debates on the most pressing marine and drinking water issues facing the planet today.
One of Hollywood’s leading film actresses, Hannah, noted for her mermaid role in Ron Howard’s “Splash” and her environmental activism, is dedicated to ecological sustainability and will also participate in the panels. Surfers and divers will offer clinics to guests while musicians jam on the sandbanks. Award-winning chefs will keep guests sustained with ethically sourced gourmet food, best enjoyed with biodynamic wines from Australia’s Margaret River.
