Lewis Pugh, endurance swimmer and UN Patron of the Oceans, has been nominated for the 2015 Observer Ethical Awards as “Campaigner of the Year”. This category recognises the public-facing campaigner who has made the biggest difference to Observer readers, and put ethical issues on the global agenda.

One of the world’s leading inspirational speakers, Lewis is a tireless campaigner for the creation of Marine Protected Areas (MPA). Most recently, he put his life on the line with a series of swims in Antarctica, and is now working to break the political deadlock preventing the creation of the world’s biggest MPA in the Ross Sea. According to the Observer, “His endeavours have already captured the hearts of the Russian public leading him to coin the term speedo diplomacy.”

Other nominees include Leonardo DiCaprio, Mary Robinson and Emma Watson.
