Mattias and his film crew will go on assignment in Indonesia for an upcoming TV-documentary to be released in 2011. The team will work in one of the richest marine environments on the planet. The primary objective of Mattias Klum's TV-documentary is to engage people in one of the Earth's greatest concerns today: How we can go about protecting the oceans, while at the same time using them in a sustainable way. The film aims to instill confidence, strength and hope - rather than a sense hopelessness, powerlessness and apathy - as we confront the issues, and show us how we can all contribute to saving our oceans. This film project is within the scope of Project Oceans and is initiated by the Dutch and Swedish Postcodelotteries.
