Sea Youth Rise Up

Sea Youth Rise Up supports diverse youth to become ocean champions and provides them with opportunities to connect  directly with policymakers and other decision makers. Collaboratively developed in 2015 by The Ocean Project, Big Blue & You, and the Youth Ocean Conservation Summit, the Sea Youth Rise Up campaign currently focuses primarily on advocating for conservation policy in the United States. The campaign provides important leadership opportunities for youth and ensures that decision-makers fully recognize the importance of involving diverse young people throughout the process of creating a better future. We provide training and support these incredible ocean advocates to share their message with world leaders at the United Nations, the U.S. Congress, the White House, corporate leaders, with the media, and with their peers around our blue planet. For more information, visit the Sea Youth Rise Up site.

Please note: Because of the pandemic, the Sea Youth Rise Up campaign has not been held in person since 2019 but will return in 2023.
