Youth Advocacy Training

The Ocean Project launched a virtual advocacy training program in 2022 for youth that 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.

Free online training programs will be coming in early 2024!

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.
