"Living Colors for Pure Ocean" celebrates the mesmerizing beauty of the ocean through the lens of its colorful biodiversity. This exhibition highlights the extraordinary, often invisible, marine microfauna that plays a crucial role in the balance of ocean ecosystems. 

By revealing marine life in all its chromatic glory, we hope to raise awareness and take action to preserve the ocean.

This event is part of the sustainability initiative of Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi and inline with the UN Sustainable Development Goal 14.
