The Sustainable Director - Episode Thirteen with Wietse Van Der Werf

In this episode of the Sustainable Director podcast, Ellis Hall is joined by Wietse Van Der Werf, a social entrepreneur who is on a mission to combat the destruction we have caused our oceans over the past decades.

Wietse is the founder of the Sea Ranger Service, a Dutch-born business dedicated to restoring 1 million hectares of ocean biodiversity by 2040 whilst training 20,000 young people for a career in the maritime industry.

In this podcast, Wietse shares his story of how he is creating a more sustainable future for our oceans. He talks about the challenges he has faced, the successes he has achieved, and the lessons he has learned along the way.

This is a story we can all learn something from. It is a story of hope, resilience, and the power of one person to make a difference.

We would recommend listening to this podcast if you are interested in learning more about ocean conservation, social entrepreneurship, or simply want to be inspired by a truly remarkable individual.
