Youth Advocacy Training

The Ocean Project launched a new virtual advocacy training program in 2023.  The content covered in the program builds upon and refines the existing advocacy skills of attendees, while encouraging strengthened collaborative conservation action - locally, nationally, and globally. The training program has been developed by experienced leaders working in ocean and climate advocacy, with input and suggestions from members and alumni of the World Ocean Day Youth Advisory Council.

The first training series, a 4-week session in January-February 2023, was designed for youth leaders ages 15-21 who are associated with a zoo, aquarium, and/or museum. This is the first of many more advocacy training programs to come!

Rise Up! Webinar

From early 2020  until 2022, this youth-led monthly webinar series connected young people, including those associated with youth groups, schools, aquariums, zoos, and more with a global online community of change makers focused on protecting our shared blue planet – together!  By youth and for youth, each webinar highlighted what youth are doing to safeguard the ocean, protect the climate, address other interconnected issues, and provide opportunities for how to get involved.
