Malizia My Ocean Challenge – New York Activation Event

May 18th, 2024 | 10:00 am - 12:00 pm | United Nations International School (UNIS), 24-50 FDR Drive, New York, NY 10010 and online

Together with the co-hosts University of Cologne NY Office, Deutsche Sprachschule NY at UNIS, ZfA, Forum Deutsch, and DWIH New York, Team Malizia organizes an interactive ‘My Ocean Challenge’ event for German speaking children in New York.

The event takes place in the context of the Transatlantic Lorient-New York sailing race where recent German Cross of Merit recipient Boris Herrmann will participate to prepare for his second Vendée Globe in Autumn 2024, circumnavigating the world alone in his Malizia-seaexplorer racing yacht. The event consists of an interactive speech by Birte Lorenzen-Herrmann, interviewing University of Cologne alumnus and Columbia University scientist Jannik Martens, a quiz, and an artwork-project with the children.
