World Environment Day 2023 at Dorado Beach, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve


Ocean Guardians Unite! Celebrating World Environment Day with Richard Murphy of Ocean Futures Society and co-creator of Ambassadors of the Environment at Dorado Beach, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve

World Environment Day at Dorado Beach, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve, today was an extraordinary event that left a lasting impact on all who attended. The celebration was a perfect blend of inspiration, education, and action, bringing together passionate individuals from various backgrounds to commemorate this important day.

The highlight of the event was undoubtedly the presence of Richard Murphy, a true legend in the field of marine conservation, who has dedicated an impressive 50 years to the Ocean Futures Society working with Jean-Michel Cousteau. I had the privilege of interviewing him, capturing his insights and experiences in this captivating video podcast. 

Throughout the day, the resort buzzed with excitement as guests engaged in various activities and workshops. From guided tours showcasing the resort’s eco-friendly initiatives to interactive displays and educational sessions, attendees were immersed in an environment of learning and discovery. 

The celebration culminated with a meaningful tree planting ceremony. We came together, shovels in hand, to plant trees in the nearby forest. The act of planting trees served as a reminder that our actions today shape the world of tomorrow, leaving a lasting legacy for future generations.

World Environment Day at Dorado Beach, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve, was celebrated at the Ambassadors of the Environment Program, which inspires guests to embrace sustainability and take their newfound knowledge and passion back to their communities. World Environment Day was started by the United Nations in 1972. Join in the Ambassadors of the Environment Program on your next holiday with The Ritz-Carlton Family!
