A monthly update to inspire youth-centered collaboration 
for our blue planet
Together, we can create a better future!

This new monthly update aims to enhance and uplift the efforts of youth-focused organizations + youth leaders by connecting them to opportunities for action and each other, and growing a global network for positive change.

This effort is powered by the collective action of all and is committed to inclusivity and radical collaboration. Together, we can grow a movement for a more equitable and sustainable society and a healthy ocean!

Spotlight on Youth Organizations

Each month we will feature youth organizations to look into and opportunities to get involved with!

For this first newsletter, we are linking to various organizations doing amazing work in communities and countries across our blue planet. This list is a growing one and we will be linking more each week going forward, as well as amplifying youth efforts on our social platforms.

If you're involved with an organization you would like us to include, please contact us!
World Oceans Day
Youth Advisory Council
With their fresh ideas and unique and diverse perspectives, Council members shape World Oceans Day, growing its reach and impact in June and advocating for ocean conservation throughout the year.

From developing youth-led projects to actively participating in conferences around the world, Council members put their skills, talents, and networking abilities to use - inspiring both youth to get actively involved and adults to make the right decisions.
Rise Up! Webinar
This youth-led monthly webinar series connects young people with a global online community of change makers focused on protecting our shared blue planet. 

By youth and for youth, each webinar highlights what young people are doing for the ocean, to protect the climate, and address other related environmental issues. The webinars also provide opportunities for how you can get involved!
