The Tara Ocean Foundation
Romain Troublé has degrees in 2 different fields — a Master 2 in molecular biology from the Sorbonne, and a Master from HEC – Telecom Paris. As a professional sailor, he participated in regattas at the highest level — twice in the America’s Cup French challenges in 2000 and 2003 in Auckland, NZ. He worked from 2003 to 2006 for a company specialized in polar logistics, organising sporting and scientific expeditions in the Arctic, Antarctica and Siberia, including the discovery of mammoths frozen in permafrost. Since 2004 he has been in charge of the operational management of Tara expeditions, and since 2009, executive director of the Tara Ocean Foundation.
Since 2017, Romain has also been president of the Ocean Climate Platform which brings together more than 96 institutions, foundations, companies, and associations working on advocacy for the ocean’s role in issues of climate and biodiversity.
My Sustainability Goals for 2021:
My goal is that we reduce by half the travelling of the Tara Foundation staff, which will also help us use our time more efficiently for both private and professional purposes.
