Speakers to be announced.

Sylvie will end the evening with a Blue Marble Contemplation – “Pay it forward”

Blue Marble is the name of the photograph taken by Apollo 17 astronauts in 1972, when we first saw Earth from space. We looked small, fragile, beautiful, and blue, from a million miles away.
There are over 100,000 of these recycled glass marbles circling the globe. Presidents have held them. Celebrities have held one. Both the Pope and the Dalai Lama have held one. Now Santa Monica will have an opportunity to grow this movement by honoring nature protectors/restorers in the community.


The Connect to Protect Gallery Event is presented by the City of Santa Monica’s Office of Sustainability and the Environment along with Sustainable Works
