President Tong's TED Talk on Mission Blue II

Mission Blue II + TED: Ideas for Addressing the Ocean's Most Pressing Challenges

President Tong and Dr. Greg Stone set sail on Mission Blue ll, a TED expedition held on board the National Geographic Lindblad ship Orion in the South Pacific, Oct. 10 – 16, where they journeyed from Papua New Guinea to the Solomon Islands. The goal of this journey was creative collaboration and generating brilliant ideas that can be backed by practical solutions to ocean problems. Common traits among the passengers were ingenuity and the will to tackle tough ocean issues through media, science, art, technology, entrepreneurship and, most of all, ideas.
